The house and grounds were far lovelier than we expected. Furnishings were elegant and unusual as the house is furnished by an artistic couple. In the living room, there were floor to ceiling windows that gave us marvelous light and views. The kitchen was well appointed and we had breakfast every day in one of the outside seating areas. The bedrooms were comfortable and the 2,upstairs bedrooms were spacious. The bedroom on the first floor was smaller but had doors onto one of the patios which let in a lovely breeze and great sunshine. We swam in the lovely pool every day - which is big enough for lap swimming for three people. We cannot overemphasize how lovely the grounds were. There is also a very friendly dog who we assume belongs to the owner and comes around to say hello. We loved the house so much that we alternated days at home with days of touring during our 2 week stay. On really warm days there was good air conditioning in all the rooms.
