    “Amazing property in a superb location”

    I arrived at the property in the dark so had no idea of the fantastic view over the valley. A lovely surprise the next morning. The retreat itself was amazing. Such attention to detail. You could want for nothing. Everything was provided to make your stay entirely relaxing and comfortable. It was lovely and warm with the underfloor heating. Just after my arrival, the owner knocked on the door to welcome me and offer any help should I need it.
    All in all an absolutely lovely weekend stay. I hope to return for a longer stay soon.
