We stayed at Mark and Anita's place last year and enjoyed it so much that we came back this year with another family. Weather was great. The pool and massive garden/grounds keep the kids busy.
The house is well equipped with all the usual plus satellite and wifi.
Our hosts are very nice, helpful and discreet. We hardly noticed they were there.
We went away to get away from it all and succeeded.
