We stayed from mid week to mid week in August, and one of the hottest weeks of the year. Plenty of ventilation with the house remaining secure as all doors and windows have ventilated shutters. The owners, who live near by, were non-intrusive however helped with information regarding wine tasting, local facilities such as vets and shops. The house felt homely and lived in with everything needed for modern living included. A fantastic heating system together with a large wood stove nearly hidden away behind an interesting decorative surround. We obviously didn't need the stove the week we we're there. The house was decorated to a high standard with quality doors, windows and floors.
Pet owners will find a small, almost hidden, gate at the bottom of the garden, leading to extensive pathways, grass areas and walks and acres of vineyards.
There is an ample, open to the garden, covered area against the house and it was great to sit there into the late evenings.
Laundry facilities are in the basement and are simply excellent.
Keep the front door key with you, unless somebody is remaining in the house or you might lock yourself out.
The kitchen was very well appointed however a knife for cutting bread (a bread knife!) would be useful, as would a microwave.
Highly recommended and would book again if visiting the area.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. The house is in a beautiful little village with a few great restaurants and very easy access to hiking trails. It is also close to larger towns. The house was clean and well-maintained, and the hosts were extremely helpful and friendly. The weather was very hot while we were there, and so inside the house was very hot. It would have been nice to have a few fans, but I understand that this type of weather is not common. The main drawback of the house for us is that it only has one bathroom (toilet and shower in the same room), and it is on the ground floor. This led to some inconvenience during the day while people were showering/getting ready. It also led to some difficulties at night, especially for the people sleeping on the second floor because if they need to use the bathroom during the night, they have to come down two sets of stairs (and the set of stairs up to the second floor is very steep). Otherwise, it was a great place to stay!
