Peaceful, lazy days by the pool in a beautiful location

5 of 5
We had a wonderful restful time at the Cabin. The accommodation and garden complete with pool were excellent and contributed to a wonderful relaxing holiday. Mike is such a wonderful kind host and was most helpful in every way. Many thanks Mike... The area itself high up in the mountains was spectacular and made a very pleasant change from the sometimes crowded resorts closer to the coast. Visitors to the Cabin won't be disappointed!

5 of 5
Loved my stay, i cosy clean home. Plus the location is very good as you have a few places you can go to. There are chillout spots. You can go see a waterfall behind the bar or you can go down to the pantano like i did with my dog. Will almost definately stay again.
