The owners of the cottage are living on site in the main house and will grant you a personalized welcome. They will provide you with all useful information and will be glad to help whenever needed. But don't worry, they are not intrusive. The cottage is yours for the duration of your stay and your privacy will be respected. Be aware however that you will share the swimming pool with them.
