Every room revealed fabulous period furniture and style, and all the many bedrooms were individually designed and presented. Huge inglenook fireplace in the dining room, where the tasty breakfasts with homemade jam were served, snug room with pool table, drawing room - so many great places in the house to explore. Outside, walnut and orange trees line the garden which leads to Alvaro's new croquet lawn (in progress!) and the excellent pool. All in all, we couldn't be more delighted with this accommodation and will be back. Thanks Alvaro!
