The house is wonderful and maintained to a very high standard by the owners who have thought of everything that you need for the perfect holiday house. The village has 7 restaurants, 3 wine shops and a small supermarket all within a short walking distance of the property.

Management response:

Glad again that you all enjoyed your stay there and look forward to seeing you next year. As you say, the village more or less covers everything you need, all within walking distance. As we see it, the perfect place for a holiday.
