We especially loved the atmosphere of this unique property. It was my favorite place to stay! If you love history and very unique buildings....this place will fill the bill. I just wish the walls could talk.

                                                                        It is a very old house and not like staying in a hotel, but that was part of the experience.

                                                                        Would definitely go back!!

                                                                        orchard o.

The house is lovely and full of character, charm and spaciousness. Enough space for 20 people inside, comfortably! Maybe a room or two with stacked beds would even be better, just in case you wanted to offer the property for larger groups - just an idea. On the other hand, the caretaker was so very helpful and we managed to get good bedding for everyone in no-time! Thank you again for the great opportunity of staying in this lovely villa!
