Our spacious lounge is shared with guests. Here they breakfast, use the library (a good selection of books in Spanish and English) consult local tourist information or relax with the television. Dinners from our a-la-carte menu are served by prior arrangement. Outside is the summer terrace which may be enjoyed all- year round on sunny days as it is sheltered from cold north winds. The gardened area around the house is in "slow expansion" offering a touch of colour throughout the seasons and our 60 year old vine at the front of the house provides wonderful cool summer shade. We have two bicycles for guests use.
