  • The gardens are lovely and the former owner, who took up blacksmithing and iron working in a big way, adorned his home with an array of intriguing dragons. Great fun

  • Beautiful spanish furniture inside the home. No pictures allowed inside only outside. Too bad! Great detail went into the customizing the home.
  • Unique place with rich history. Worth the wait. Hard to get in due to village limitations. Book in advance.
