Great house and very quiet environment

We spent a weekend three couples with two children and we enjoyed it very much. The house is very spacious and does not lack anything. Everything is in perfect condition and very clean. The garden area is ideal with a barbecue, table, swimming pool and hammocks. And the environment is very quiet. In addition, Laura is very kind and attentive. Without a doubt, we will repeat. Thanks for everything.
