The pool was in constant use by all generations and the table tennis kept the boys and their fathers busy for hours. We had all our meals outside on the lovely covered terrace. The house was very well equipped, comfortable and had plenty of space. The area offered lots to do such as cycling, boating, trips to the coast etc. I'd like to think we'll come back one day.
