"Tranquil and unspoilt"

We booked this very last minute as we hadn't enjoyed the place we had booked for a week? Martin was great at agreeing things quickly and sending an answer by text and email. We had a great few days watched the cycle racing nearby and did some riding ourselves in the surrounding mountains. The house is in a very quiet area and has everything you could want. The list of instructions on how to use the microwave etc were very good and the maps and suggestions for the local towns and village a really good idea we wish all rentals had something similar.
The area is beautiful and the view from house great. Lovely peaceful quiet but still close enough to civilisation not to feel completely cut off.
