Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Frans

We spent a glorious week at this magnificent estate.

The home, grounds and furnishings are equally spectacular to the photos.

The house throughout was beautifully and thoughtfully furnished and maintained.

The kitchen was incredibly well equipped including spices and pantry staples. The owner left spot on recommendations as to local markets, high and low brow dining, and sight seeing opportunities. 

There are many wonderful quaint and historic villages to explore -which are not over run with tourists. Each day we returned for cocktails by the beautiful pool followed by dinner on the terrace softly lit by antique chandeliers hanging from the trees. If you think it sounds like a dream.. it is.

This is not a typical "rental" but an opportunity to experience a truly spectacular home and way of life.

We can not recommend this property more highly.
