    Beautifully designed holiday house. Our family enjoyed every single aspect of the house. Very recommended. The architect must be a genius.

  • Lovely home

    Lovely home. Better than the pictures. Has some really nice design elements, like the wall of patio doors that open to enjoy the cute garden. Great kitchen, well stocked. We really wanted to stay longer. Good location for walking into the main town area.
