‘Villa was very well equipped. ’
by: Greg Salthouse
This villa has a history to it and is very characterful. The guest book says it many times over but Steve, the caretaker, was there when needed and invisible when not. I benefitted from his local knowledge and was intrigued by the history of the place. He just gave as much or as little as you needed. The proximity of the main house is absolutely not a problem. In fact, with the large grounds supplied, it is a benefit. When you do need something help is immediate. You may like to make more of the outside space. There is the pool area. Shaded table tennis outside, room for a badminton court, which we erected and still an almost football size pitch with a goal on another level. There is still the swing and the outside eating area which is cool and shady morning and evening. The village is exceptionally quiet and peaceful. We were expecting this and were not disappointed. The bakery was useful. Otherwise there is nothing. Which was fine for us as we like self catering. Plenty of interesting places locally but a car is essential.
