Welcoming friendly hosts in an immaculate attractive home with a surprisingly amazing outdoor environment with meandering stone path, waterfalls, ponds, seating areas, gazebo and even a hammock for an afternoon nap...

Healthy breakfasts with fresh fruits, granola, and yogurt to start followed by omelettes and French toast the days we were there.

So sorry I didn't bring my...
