Having a heated pool was a real treat and meant we were able to use it much later into the evening. We hope to return one day & enjoy another glass wine overlooking the mountains. Thank you Florence & family for sharing your beautiful home with us.

A short walking distance into the town and great easy access to the mountains. The size and space of the property was also great, especially for cyclists. The garage for storing bikes is massive. Great washing and wifi facilities too. Sorry to say that the property was not very clean on arrival. Cobwebs in the toilet and bedrooms; this can easily be resolved.
