"Relaxing simplicity - beautiful view - characterful property"

Absolutely beautiful old character property with amazing views over the countryside. Much larger than it originally appears. In the middle of Preixan but feels very private due to high walls around garden. Pool overlooking views. Fantastic local restaurant and good local small supermarket. The owner was incredibly helpful and the local staff who look after the property were very friendly. Would definitely recommend this property. Stayed there for a week and it was very relaxing.

Thank you so much for your kind comments so glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again
