The cottage was picturesque, spacious and very welcoming . The spotless bedrooms were all ensuite and had terraces outide every bedroom and a large private terrace outside the front. The cottages overlooked the fabulous pool and very well kept gardens. Sun loungers and shady hammocks helped us to relax and chill. We liked the private feel of the cottages as...

Getting around
The roads are amazingly quiet and stunningly beautiful at any time of the year.

The motorway provides a fast track option, from and to the airports, but even these roads are very quiet and very simple to navigate.

Driving here is a pleasure, but you can always hop on one of our bicycles as an alternative way to explore the countryside.
