The house is just terrific, big, some rooms lovely furnitured and neat. Everything necessary for cooking available in the kitchen and even more....Owners are very dedicated. Swimming pool was very clean, nice view at vineyards. The spot is lovely. Plenty of shadow at hot summerdays. A visit to the nearby castle is recommended (also their wine).
