Thank you Peter for your kind comments. I must correct you on one point though, the steep and narrow road is not dirt, it was paved two years ago. The only part which is still dirt is the 300 metres of flat track next to the river at the bottom of our hill.
I take on board your comments about the mattresses, every winter we review and upgrade something in the house, and the WIFI is being completely renewed and rewired next week. The mattresses will shortly follow. The lounge area is indeed quite small, as we state in our description, the house is perfect for 2, but a bit of a squash for 4. Unfortunately more guests seem to just go on the price, rather than reading the description fully first. And you are correct, it is GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY, particularly when you include the welcome food pack (fresh eggs, milk, juice, butter, jam, water, etc), the use of the swimming pool and hot tub,and not forgetting the ever-present, helpful and attentive Ed. Most Airbnb properties in which I have stayed around the world, I have never ever met the host, let alone had an Ed on hand 24/7 !!
