You need no more to relax.
You need no more to relax.
Our little family (including a 6-months old baby) spent 3 days at this beautiful place, felt at home at once and did (just about) not leave the place for all of that time. Great hosts, good accomodation (well equiped kitchen), wonderful pool - nothing more to ask for (except maybe to turn down the fiesta-music we heard for 2 days across the valley: the church community was celebrating). The place is especially suited for people with young children, that can run around and explore the wonderful surrounding - so that the whole family will have a memorable experience. If you are looking for "happenings", this does not seem to be the right place.
