We had one week at Cal Sodhi, staying in one of the properties. We like accommodation that is of a good quality that is in a quiet and picturesque location. Cal Sodhi certainly lived up to our expectations. In fact, we gave it 5/5 on all accounts, apart from facilities, purely because it did not have a pool. However, the owners, Rosa and Kami, intend to have one in place for next season. Having said that, our experince was so good, we would go back whether the pool was in place or not. The family are rightly very proud of their hard work to make their village live once again and are very, very conscious of caring for and protecting this beautiful area. All the family are incredibly helpful and friendly, with a special mention for Rosa's Dad. I parked the car next to the old trough to clean my windscreen and within minutes he was out with a hosepipe ready for me to wash the whole car. There are so many things to do and see in the area, but when you can walk out of your property and sit and look at the magnificent views, you don't need to go very far!
A wonderful warm welcome from our hosts was just the start of a great Christmas holiday for my family and I. We particularly enjoyed the real log fire which gave a great atmosphere. Another highlight was visiting the farm animals, the sheep and the chickens, which for us as city dwellers was a real treat. The location featured speactacular scenary and a picturesque lake with walking distance, The house is really comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipped, preparing Christmas dinner for 6 was no problem.
Many thanks to Lidia and her family who made us feel very welcome, we will surely return.
