There is so much uniformity among the cottages that you will feel like you have entered a stone house. Its the perfect place for a family holiday. They have beautiful lawns and numerous varieties of flowers. You can walk down to the flowing white river, dip your feet and listen to some charming music formed by chirruping birds and the flowing river water.
