"Home Away From Home in a Fabulous Valley"
Gabby and her family couldnt have been nicer. The property was so well equiped it was incredable. We didnt have to buy any of the usual bits that you need but would not use them all such as the coffee filters, they were already all provided as well as all the basics to get you started such as coffee, sugar,milk, biscutes, etc. not to mention the bottle of champaigne! The property itself was incredable, comfortable, immacualtely clean, loads of cups, saucers and utensils! The beds were probably the most comfortable we have ever slept in!! The kids loved the huge Jacuzzi!! Location couldn't have been better with several really family friendly restaurants within 5 min walk in the village. Activities abound locally.
