Pool / Spa
Very attractively-situated and well-maintained
We greatly enjoyed our stay. The property was very attractively-situated and well-maintained. Rooms were quite spacious, clean and cool (and midge-free because of the shutters). The garden was also attractive and the pool clean and welcome at the end of a warm day. We were made welcome on arrival and our hosts were very helpful, on hand if necessary without being intrusive. It was very good accommodation and we had a good holiday, thank you.
