Things To Do

If you fancy a little activity during your holiday there is plenty to do in the area. We have lived here for many years & have a good knowledge of places to visit, vineyards to try. Most of the activities we have done with our children whilst they have been growing up here.

We also have regular updates of what’s on during your stay – from local Tennis tournaments to National Festivals in the area. We are happy to recommend what would suit your family group the best. Equally, if you want to spend your time by the pool sampling the local produce and wines, we can recommend good local suppliers.
