We had our private closed garden where we could enjoy birds slashing in the water bowl. Very relaxing. In the morning we had breakfast made by Virginia....

Words can not describe Cypress Cottage. The tranquil atmosphere is overwhelming, you just want to sit in the garden all day long, to enjoy the sound of the birds in the trees. Thank you very much Hillary, for the most relaxing stay we had!
