Penny Earle review 22 Aug 20124 star rating

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The peace and quiet of an off-the-beaten-track white village. Getting there on the mountain roads and getting lost on a walk! Sitting in the cloud on a balmy evening on the roof terrace. Bliss!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Check out where the big irrigation tank is on day one - it's a great place to swim.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes. I was happy to shop locally, drink the local wine and eat the produce. We were, however, disappointed that there was hardly any recycling - only bottles.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Wonderfully relaxing in a real place. The owner was helpful and friendly and the younger villagers welcomed my daughter. The situation in the mountains is exquisitely beautiful and gave us a week of pure downtime. The apartment was beautifully decorated, quirky and interesting. Wonderful!
