    A very well equipped property and the swimming pool is a real bonus. The fire in the evenings was most welcome. Close enough to the village for people to walk, but far enough away to not have traffic and noise.

  • We had a very disappointing stay here

    We had a very disappointing stay here. Every night the we would see mice running across the kitchen bench and could hear them in the piano. There was a lot of mice droppings. The house needed a good clean. The setting was very nice but the cleanliness of the house let it down. I contacted the property manager after our stay and they said they would contact the owner but I never heard back from them. I wouldn't recommend this home to others.

  • Karo was clean, warm and very well appointed

    Karo was clean, warm and very well appointed. It felt like our "other" home. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  • Good 5 bedroom property

    Good 5 bedroom property. It needs a good spring clean as grease, cobwebs, mouse droppings throughout kitchen and walls. None of the worn furniture matches and living areas are full of owners belongings, all sorts of unnecessary items. Pool and olive grove setting is nice.
