I've never given a 10/10 grade before, but this property truly deserves it. We were astonished by the quality of the facilities. Superbly decorated with interesting ornaments. Very clean. Great, private, walled garden (my Wife said she thought she'd woken up in heaven). Appointed in a village, about a half an hours drive from a beach. Close to local houses. It is best described as a private oasis, we spent a lot of time in the garden, recuperating between trips out. Because of this, I was amazed at how little money I spent. Owner very warm and helpful.
