About the Owner

My name is Nadia and my family, and I use the house for a few weeks during the Easter break and sometimes at Xmas. I have been letting out the property for ten years and it is managed for me by my son and daughter-in-law as I am now retired.

The surrounding countryside is beautiful and yet it is not far to the beach or big towns for markets. It is a perfect place to get away from it all and relax.

From the Owner

The house is all on one level so I can get about easily. The garden is well-tended and south-facing so I can sit out there until late evening, and the house has all the windows facing the garden and pool. The pool itself has ledges so I can sit in the pool without being submerged.
