The house is very well equipped and it was lovely to have the patio and garden, offering several different places to sit outside. The walk into the city (20 minutes) is very pleasant, along the banks of a stream, bringing you into town just behind the cathedral. In the other direction, there are footpaths out into the hills - we climbed to a tower at St Miguel, which offered wonderful views all around. This was the best of both worlds - like being in the countryside, yet also close to the city centre. Roser was very friendly and welcoming; she explained local buses, shops and provided maps to help. She left us to enjoy the space, but was there to help if we needed anything.
