ENCHANTING HOME FROM HOME

  • 5 out of 5
This is the perfect choice for anyone wanting peace and tranquillity in a rural setting, yet with easy access to the coast and interesting towns. The property is full of character, and because it is primarily a family home has a welcoming 'lived in' feel with lots of artwork and photographs around the place. There are a number of pleasant spots in which to relax and soak up the sun and the ambiance, but the area around the pool, which is conveniently close to the kitchen, was our favourite location. In the evening we enjoyed watching the many fish in the pond below the bungalow as the sun went down. Lovers of old buildings with quirky internal arrangements will adore Les Morrisons, the frail or very young may find the different floor levels at ground level challenging. Overall, highly recommended and a place I would certainly consider revisiting.
