Very clean and it was like staying in a posh hotel. Cristina had a meal prepared for us, roast chicken, which was very welcome as we had an evening flight. And to our surpise someone came in to change the bedding and towels midweek and left us a lovely supper! Thank you Cristina for your kindness. We are already planning our trip for next year!
