Parfait de l''accueil au cadre, une vue splendide et un lieu typique. Le propriétaire, José est très sympathique et sa maison est très bien pensée et bien entretenue! Un séjour dépaysant ou il est agréable de constater que les photos du site ne sont pas là pour tromper le voyageur. Nous sommes parti à 7, une maison parfaite pour un séjour en famille ou entre amis!! OBLIGADO JOSE!!

This house exceeded all our expectations. The location is peaceful and very close to a river beach with a small bar. Inside and outside the house is clean and tidy, with a traditional feel (it is an old, renovated building), and with a great swimming pool where we spent most of the holiday. Highly recommended!
