We have just returned from one of the loveliest holidays we have ever had. The owners of the chalets, Cathy and Jon, along with their amazing menagerie of delightful animals have created a real haven of tranquility that even the falling acorns couldn't disrupt. The setting, wooded hillside leading down to a winding stream and valley, is unspoiled and teaming with birds, we watched tree creepers hopping up the trees outside the bedroom window every day and were twice treated to the sight of massed, soaring vultures overhead, dramatic and exciting. Even the rainy days were enjoyable. The chalet was perfect; it is big enough to not feel cramped, kitted out for all we needed (we cooked for ourselves on most days rather than eat out as the local produce available is great, we like cooking and sitting out on the veranda first thing in the morning and then as the evening light fades was just a delight), but it is rustic enough not to detract from the feeling of being very much part of the natural surroundings. We had lots of days out to some very interesting places and were very happy to return home to the chalet and a swim in the pool. The chalets are positioned so that each one has its own space and although Cathy is always on hand if needed and nothing is too much trouble for her, we were able to enjoy a kind of blissful solitude which we were more than happy to break to enjoy Lili's, their beautiful french bull dog, happy greetings. I read through the comments that had been left in the visitor's book and they all said pretty much the same; 'un havre de paix', 'fantastic holiday'. We are really looking forward to returning their next year. I have mentioned in the 'would you recommend' section below that I would recommend it for people with disabilities. My only qualification of that is that anyone with significantly impaired mobility may find it difficult but I am sure Cathy would be advise on that.
