A perfect spot



A perfect spot

We booked the house based mainly on the picture we saw. I must say it is a lot bigger than we thought. Although only 2 of us stayed here it will accomadate 6+ it's such a wonderful homely and surprisingly warm cabin that I will most certainly come back. We didn't have the weather on our side do we couldn't use the hot tub and the house is in a place that's remote enough to feel like the wilderness but near enough to Borganes to get the groceries etc. All in all we had a lovely stay here and I will most certainly return but probably in the summer. You definitely need a car preference a 4x4 as the house is upside of the mountain but with great views across the bay.. Owned by a lovely couple who also use it as a summer holiday home which gives it it homely feel. You won't be disappointed..

We had a great time in your cottage and we all thought that it was the best of the three (which were all good) that we stayed in this holiday. Your instructions were clear but I would add the following:

1. Detailed instructions on recycling and rubbish.

2. A note about the outside lights; I think they come on when it gets dark but we did hunt about for a switch to see if we had turned them on by accident!

We were able to see a lovely sunset yesterday evening.

And a note from Martina!

We loved your cottage, so much like a home, thank you very much for making it so beautiful.

The sheets and bed were so comfortable!

The view was fabulous!

The facilities all great.

Wonderful to have a dishwasher, washing machine and drier.

I personally really loved sitting upstairs at the small workstation, writing my book.

The seating areas were comfortable, and the table looking out to the scene was wonderful.
