The property was tidy and cosy with a beautiful decking area for surveying the rolling countryside. The chicken and pigs at the bottom of the garden were a highlight. Would recommend a car for excursions, although bikes are provided for local trips. Recommended.

This was probably the best of them all. The property was immaculate, superbly equipped, comfortable and quietly situated in a charming rural hamlet populated by charming people. If we are able we will return here again very soon. We have no hesitation in recommending this property to friends and family. The owner could not have been more helpful and contributed to our enjoyment of a fabulous holiday
