Other things to note
Water softener provided, all windows have shutters to help keep heat out in hottest months. Ceiling fans in double bedrooms and air con in Master and Guest House. Independent transport is a must, we are located down a country lane! Mosquitos can be a problem in high summer. All rooms have electric mosquito repellers and most bedroom windows have netting but do come prepared, particularly with small children.
Access into pool is via metal steps so not ideally suited for young children or guests with impaired mobility.

We are total foodies and dog nuts. Love visiting new places and experiencing other ways of life. Outdoors is a way of life, we love the sea and walking in wilderness, so Spain suits us wonderfully. Great readers and interested in history, so much so that I am currently researching and writing about Spain's history. It's quite fascinating how the world is linked together. More than you may think.
