"Laid back and spoiled"
Bill and Jude Thanks very much for sharing your idyll with us during our stay. We arrived as strangers and left as firm friends.
The welcome pack left us with little shopping to do making more time for leisure pursuits, and the accommodation was faultless from the well equipped studio to the BBQ and pool. For the first time ever we truly did not want to leave.
The area itself is beautiful - mountains, trees, clean air and that amazing view of the river everyday. All of which is taken in your stride with no rush and friendly, generous locals you really are spoiled. Long may it continue.
