O espaço é bastante agradável e tranquilo. Muito confortável e de uma limpeza inquestionável. Mas o que tenho que dar mais destaque é à simpatia e disponibilidade da Dona Susana, é sem dúvida uma mais valia. Parabéns e obrigado por tudo.

Queremos agradecer toda a amabilidade ao Sr.João e à Sra.Susana pela excelente estadia que nos proporcionou...

Pontos + :

decoração da casa


excelente quinta com quartos para todos

excelente conforto dos quartos

excelente aquecimento para a casa inteira

excelente vista

local extremamente calmo e relaxante


Unico ponto negativo foi não haver agua quente para todos tomarem banho...

Ao fim de 3 pessoas tomarem banho,os seguintes tomavam banho em agua fria

Voltaremos de certeza absoluta...
