Arrival and departure arrangements worked well. Everything was spotlessly clean on our arrival. Enjoyed Monica's meal. Kitchen however was cramped when catering for 7 people. Some noise on weekend evenings from nearby outside bar. Otherwise reasonably quiet despite proximity to the village and the main access roads.
