We stayed for six weeks mid Feb to end of March 2017 For tall people the smaller bedroom may take a little getting used to with its sloping roof I banged my head once or twice in the first few days but you learn, Kitchen facilities great easy to use washing machine all the plates cutlery glass and storage space you need Emiliio is of great help if you need him I would probably go back The only drawback we found was that we did not get a lot of sunshine on the balcony as it is north facing What it might be like in june and july I do not know David and Lynn Wake

I wanted tranquillity and apart from a few barking dogs, that's exactly what I got. Fabrica is a wonderful place for peace and quiet - out of season. The house is charming but simple.
