Interaction with guests
My guests often comment on how nice it is to be left alone to enjoy their holiday, but also at times want to venture out and see and do things they would'nt normally do making their holiday a little bit more special and if this is the case, I am at your service. So if you fancy a trip into the mountains, want a spot of fishing or shooting, A Boat trip with a local tour boat, visit museums, local churches, markets, Olive oil factory, beaches and towns, then it will be my pleasure to help you with these things as and when you wish. You decide and i'll do all i can to make your holiday as wonderful as you wish
