A Few Nice Words

“This is a very special and magical place. We had a sense of it as soon as we arrived. Andrea had filled vases with flowers from the garden and in the fridge left a gift and plenty of fuel for the woodburning stove. There is a generosity and quality about the cottage. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable, sparkling clean in a wonderful location with sea and mountain views from your kitchen table and sitting room sofa. It is exceptionally peaceful and quiet”.
