Having warm sunshine everyday made it possible to sit outside a lot: the decking and chairs make up for the lack of a lounge area, and we were able to sit and read, watch the birds, insects and lizards, and enjoy amazing views of the valleys and mountains. Very quiet, apart from the tinkle of cow bells. Great walking country, views of Mont Blanc as you drive east away from the property, and lots of interesting places to visit. The owner was away on holiday, which was a shame, but his cat made us welcome! We were sad to leave.
