We received a very warm welcome from Amanda, accompanied by a refreshing glass of chilled wine for the adults, and home made lemonade for the children. She had prepared a starter food package for us, as we arrived late in the evening, and the house was immaculate from top to bottom. Imaginative decoration in tandem with all practical necessities ensured that we felt completely relaxed within minutes of our arrival, and even managed a midnight swim in the charming pool before bedtime ! Given that our 6 children are aged from 6 to 14, we were worried that they might become bored in such a tranquil environment, but the wide range of local activities, such as the marvellous markets and child friendly restaurants, as well as Amanda`s surprise treasure hunt for the children (!!) ensured a busy and fulfilling programme, interrupted by delicious local produce and excellent local wines. We can`t wait to go and stay again !
