Great family memories

  • 4 of 5

The accomodation was better and bigger than I expected. Perfect for a large family reunion with plenty of room and space to give us room to spread out. It was well equipped, clean and very private which we loved. We used two of the cottages which were adequate for what we needed altough one had no curtains which left it very hot. A car is a must as the village nearest is down a steep hill which is fine if you're fit nd healthy and does have a bakery and coffee shops. The nearest resturants are 10 minutes in Felguiras which has all other amenities Silvanas was very helpful and we really enjoyed our stay.
