Interaction with guests
We keep very busy and come and go frequently during the day. In the evenings, you will have as much or little interaction with us as you like. At this time of evening you'll find us watching Netflix movies in the family room, or sitting in the back patio with a glass of wine. You're always free to join us or retreat to the privacy of your room. We are open to shared evening meals, and use the barbecue often. Just let us know your preferences, and we will accommodate them.
