The village had a range of amenities within walking distance so a car was an option rather than a necessity as is the case with many other places we've stayed. The house was really well appointed and the pool area and garden excellent. We'll do plan to return

The new shower and new staircase up to the mezzanine bedroom were much appreciated. It's in a tiny hamlet up the hillside, with good walks and cycling nearby.
