The view is to die for. The pool was beautiful, and was situated high on the property, with a commanding view of the entire valley below. The house was really perfect. It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It was spacious yet felt very cozy. Even in the heat of the summer, the main floor remained cool. There is air conditioning but we didn't have to use it that much. The ability to walk to town (only 10 minutes) was a huge plus, and the main reason why we chose the house. Vanbabes - Canada July 2013
