Absolutely perfect in every respect!!,

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in la Fiona, a smaller yet perfect conversion on the site, we had a patio with spectacular views and the use of a swimming pool a few steps away. Marianne and Fleming were very welcoming. The site is spacious and very very peaceful, we couldn't recommend it more highly!! Thankyou thankyou...I hope we make it back there some time in the future. Greg and Zara
