A GLORIOUS WEEK!
If you are reading this you already know that you have chosen an amazing place.We felt relaxed the moment we walk in. The space (yet still warm) is huge+ well designed.Our son loved feeding his fish ( he name them all) and we happily (?..) off looking out on the terrace or swimming in the pool. Should you need to leave this paradise, it will be to get food (?..) to that end, the best info I can write in this book is what I wone. PTO.
A TRUELY MEMORABLE 2 weeks in the wonderfull home. Could have stayed months just looking around the house and at all the lovely art books.

Fantastic, quirky house in relaxing rural location.
Perfect place to spend a relaxing week by the pool, enjoying great local food & wine and visiting beautiful towns in the region. The house is unique, architecturally fascinating and filled with a large, eclectic collection of art. Bonkers but brilliant.
