“Wonderful House! Weather -- we'll be back when it's not cold!”

Reviewed 25 May 2012

What a wonderful stay -- even if the weather didn't cooperate. Cold and rainy in May! Not something folks from Arizona, USA see often. The property was fantastic. Centrally located to the areas we wanted to visit and tucked away in a small village without traffic, noise, etc. Sheep run down the street to the pasture every morning. The amenities were special for the price. Pool, laundry, wonderful bath accommodations. Thanks for the chance to visit and enjoy.
