From here, you should be tempted to wander downstairs to explore the enormous back yard full of different fruit trees (perfect for curious kids). Adults might like to inspect our 'mini' vineyard, or take in the view from our oversized cane chairs. Make yourself a frothy latte using our Italian coffee machine, or choose one of our quirky teapots for a cup of tea and sit in front of the combustion log fire. You might even wrap yourself up in a snuggly throw and browse through a magazine. A full bathroom with tub lets children unwind before bedtime - so parents can unwind too! Or why not soak in the tub yourself with bath salts provided. Bedrooms have block out curtains for when you want to shut out the world and simply indulge in a great night's sleep! And definitely a sleep in the next day, as we rarely rush you out by 10am :) A laundry for your convenience has large washing machine, wash tub, indoor and outdoor line, laundry powder. Plus a second toilet. The house is maintained and cleaned weekly by Silvana.More
