Very impressed

5 of 5
Lovely restored farmhouse with great character and space, situated in remote and quiet village. Lovely outdoor area with plunge pool and upstairs terrace overlooking backdrop of rugged mountain views. Very clean, nicely decorated and well equipped. Owners were extremely helpful and accommodating and made the accommodation feel home from home. They provided great directions and recommendations on places to visit. Car essential but worth the effort for such a jewel in a desert place. Would love to return some time!

Quiet,peaceful, relaxing cottage

4 of 5
We as a family of four had a really great two weeks staying in this cottage. Believe it when Nicky says it is secluded, the track to the cottage is about 1km long and fairly rough and winding. the cottage and gardens are beautiful it has everything that you need but is fairly basic. the double bed was very comfortable. The covered terrace is an excellent area of outside space for eating or just sitting and reading. The pool was great and much used by us, it is quite small and doesn't have a shallow end but that wasn't a problem for us. The local town is very nice and has everything that you need, shops bank etc. We had a nice relaxing time and a digital detox away from it all. Thanks Nicky
