The accommodation has all been lovingly restored to blend traditional style with modern convenience.
The properties all have individual garden areas/ terraces for those wishing to eat al fresco and In the cool interior of each house soft comfy sofas provide the ideal place for that afternoon siesta.
The heated swimming pool (maintains an average temperature of 28 degrees throughout the summer) is surrounded by a pretty walled garden with a large stone barbecue and terraced area for those late evening cookouts.
