  • “Lovely stay”
    Lovely little bedsit style annex above owners double garage. Double doors to small private seating area. Amazing use of space inside, didn't feel small, just very cosy. You have to walk through owners back gate and along a small covered path through their beautiful garden to reach it, but they respect privacy and don't disturb you, but are there if needed.

    Lovely little bedsit style annex above owners double garage. Double doors to small private seating area. Amazing use of space inside, didn't feel small, just very cosy. You have to walk through owners back gate and along a small covered path through their beautiful garden to reach it, but they respect privacy and don't disturb you, but are there if needed. Parking is ample for one car but coming out of drive onto small narrow street can prove challenging if in anything bigger than a fiesta/punto.(we have a Peugeot 406). House opposite was having work done so had to navigate a skip and transit van as reversing out of driveway which proved tricky but I'm sure would be easier at other times. Lovely village with lovely shops, especially the bakery which helped us gain a few extra pounds. Definately avoid the co-op and get your provisions from local small shops like butcher etc as you will miss the great foods on offer. Great place, lovely accommodation and helpful owners, well worth a visit. Highly recommend.
