We spent nearly three weeks is this spotlessly clean Casa indulging our lifelong passion for bird watching with wonderful views from the terrace and our new...

We loved the fact that the kitchen was generously equipped with plenty of everything and that...

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.
