    Absolutely beautiful! Huge, comfortable, great location. Exquisite breakfast, spectacular bathroom, common areas so vast and tastefully decorated. More like staying at the home of a very wealthy friend who was away for vacation. Help yourself to wine, food, beers, etc. Great decks and beautiful garden.
