The reccommended restaurants were...

Even more picturesque than in the photos. Perfect location - away from the hustle bustle of towns but close enough to be able to nip into town when needed. All the mod cons you'd ever need including Sky TV and WiFi. A real find - we've already booked again for next year!

Management response:

Many thanks for your generous feed back. We have set up Casa A Corte as a family home with modern technology, unlimited wifi, Sky tv, fully equipped kitchen combined with the natural world, lovely panoramic views around our property, outdoor terraces. Glad you all enjoyed it so much. Best wishes, Hazel & Hugh
