SOME CLIENT COMMENTS :
"We fell in love with the house, which it really was fully equiped, and beautiful and comfortable. The children enjoyed the garden very much. The village is wonderful and in a very good place to get to so many other. I can´t say there is anything else to improve in the house. It is just perfect.
We felt very at home here "

THANK YOU from all the family for such a great holiday. So much to see and do that 2 weeks is almost not long enough. The Owners have made the house very comfortable and we appreciated the little touches .
