It was also a great house to have kids in, with the provision of not only a cot and a high chair, but even a buggy - so useful for helping to cut down on the packing. The house is really well served by the surrounding village, with lots of bakeries, restaurants, shops and amenities - you don't have to travel far to find what you need, everything is walkable and there are some great markets. All in all a lovely holiday with fantastic weather throughout.
