Everybody was happy. The surroundings were so beautiful - we went on some fabulous walks, the houses were clean and very comfortable and best of all the pool was just perfect. Best we've had. If you like nature this is a must - kittens, dogs, chickens, owls, reptiles. Just fantastic. Our host GJ was also very helpful and attentive and kind. Great stay.
