Our two boys aged 4 and 6 were mesmerised by the patio layout with the lemon tree and having a park less than 50m down the lane was a huge blessing. It is remote so does require some planning when it comes to meals etc but no real trouble with Google and Anne's excellent information pack. All in all a lovely rural idyll.

The lounge dining area is a little spartan and the cooking facilities minimal but this really did not bother us as we were out most of the time. Carmen met us at the garage just round the corner and the secure parking space was well worth 6 euros a day right in the middle of town. We stayed two nights which was just about right to cover the main sites and attractions.
