Spread across four floors with high, beamed ceilings and a log burning fireplace, the house can sleep 10 ( +2) people. Ideal for large families or groups, and perfect for mountain-bikers, climbers, and walkers.

A place of healing and rejuvenation, late breakfasts of croissants and coffee on the roof terrace looking out over the river and craggy mountains. Then, lazily down to the pool, lots of cool refreshing swimming, lounging, and sunbathing. Back early evening for sangria on the roof terrace and watching the swifts dipping and diving. Heaven!
