  • A fantastic property that had everything we needed

    A fantastic property that had everything we needed. We enjoyed walking to the vineyards for lunch, and to the village in the evening for dinner. My wife particularly enjoyed the heated floor tiles in the bathroom. We enjoyed eating breakfast outside in the sun. We'll definitely be back.
