air in a splendidly recovered atmosphere which enriches all the common
decorative elements, granite and abode floors, bright colours and spacious
bedrooms, some with four-poster beds, make up a harmonious and bright whole.
The garden also stands out, with archaeological remains, as does the magnificent
glazed patio, the modular rooms and the cafeteria.
