This whole area is very secluded and un overlooked. Sun loungers galore. Towels, pool towels and linen provided, changed weekly.


From every aspect there are fields of sunflowers and vineyards. We have badminton, swing ball, giant garden games. We are also able to offer you a choice of free bikes to borrow, 8 of them, all sizes. You have your own BBQ too. Your own driveway leads to your own double carport.

Please note:  Although we reserve the right to share the pool we rarely do and we have our own sun terraces and sunbeds in a separate area of the grounds.
