Very nice villa, lovely walks from there in the surrounding countryside. Very nice owners and private. Nice pool and views and eveything to a good standard. We enjoyed our stay and was just the relaxing break we needed so thank you.

The house and gardens (and magical tent) are every bit as spectacular as the photos suggest, you won't be in the least bit disappointed with them. When we arrived we were given a brief informative tour and directions to the nearest markets and towns by Donald - who kindly didn't mention that we were three hours late (airport and car hire nightmare, nothing to do with the great directions we were given!). The fridge was already full though with enough snacky food to keep us going for 24 hours though so all we had to do was drop our bags and relax, what a joy. The joy just didn't stop, the house is so roomy you'll soon find your favourite spot, the house is just made for relaxing and switching off. Small towns and markets are close by if you need them, but we hardly made it out of the gates, we didn't need anything else! I'll be totally honest and say that before we went, we'd been a tiny bit nervous about the owners being on site. The emails we exchanged prior to arriving were always promptly and courteously answered, there was no difficulty there, it's just that we're quite private people and were looking forward to a bit of solitude. But we needn't have worried, both Kathryn and Donald are consummate professionals and it shows. It shows in everything from the decor, the kitchen utensils and spices provided (enough to keep a keen cook happy), the gardens which were ours to roam and most of all their absolute invisibility except when they were needed. We honestly can't fault them, they managed to be around when an orange juicer needed replacing (within minutes we had another one, that's how well organised they are) and to tell us about some local festivals, but that was it, the rest of the time the house, the tent, the pool and the gardens were ours to enjoy in peace. A truly wonderful holiday and we're very grateful to them for sharing their beautiful house with us.

Kathryn and Donald receiver us with homemade tapas as we arrived late in the evening. We stayed for 8 wonderful days and enjoyed every minute of our holiday. Beautiful nature and a great pool. Highly recommendable.

Our time at this property was genuinely fantastic. We were welcomed with a tapas lunch which was gratefully received after an early flight. Donald and Kathryn showed us around the extensive property and grounds - and then left us to our own devices and didn't invade our privacy all week (but we're on hand if we needed them). The property itself is full of character. Our kids were 2,9 and 11 and were safe and it was easy to keep an eye on them. The kitchen was well equipped and we spent most of our time eating outside near the good BBQ. Donald even drove me to the nearest supermarket as this place really is remote and all the better for it. Car essential! All in all a lovely place.
