Lovey large house
We go every year, 4 woman to spend a week together and catch up. We love spending time on the terrace and kitchen cooking. They have installed 2 bathrooms which is really helpful for 4 ladies and the kitchen is modern and clean. Telma the owner is great and can speak English. We hope to be returning for many years to come.
