Very relaxing and quiet location. Philippa Farrow was nice and helpful. I have already recomended the house for another group for next summer.

The view and scenery were amazing and the outside space was fabulous (house was welcoming and we enjoyed staying there). Luigi (owner) was incredibly welcoming and helpful - sorting out requests immediately and replacing a broken dishwasher within an afternoon (unbelievable service!!). Thank you for a great holiday and for looking after us. We loved the area and location and the house suited us down to the ground - everything we required. We had a great holiday. Thank you.
