Surrounded by a wooden deck and a large porch there are plenty of sunbeds and loungers and there is also a bathroom and pool changing room. Other activities include horse riding and hiking along the rice plains. Pick vegetables from the organic vegetable and aromatic gardens and enjoy freshly laid eggs from the henhouse.
