The villa has outdoor areas located on different levels of terrain, sometimes without barriers, and is thus not suitable for families with small children who require constant supervision.
The owners have a private villa adjacent to the mill and are occasionally in residence, but they do not use the outdoor spaces.
A housekeeper and cook live on the premises; housekeeping is included, cook service is available upon request for an extra cost.
WiFi/Internet: Service is included, but in this area, the internet connection is unreliable and the villa owners cannot accept responsibility for lack of internet services. It is strongly suggested that those who need to access their emails bring their own portable device.
Due to the fact that many properties in this area can be accessed only by unpaved roads and driveways, it is advised that guests confirm that the property can accommodate a sports or low-slung car before renting one. It is suggested that guests avoid use of minivans and buses.
