The house is perfectly positioned with beautiful views of Alte and surrounding countryside. The house is restored to a high standard with all modern amenities and to top it off great wifi. As it was November when we stayed Paul was so helpful by bringing us two loads of wood, the open fire was an added bonus , nothing was to much trouble with Paul (what a gentleman). We highly recommend Paul's house and also there is a great Restaurant at the bottom of the village with great food and wine.
