I thought it was great, but unfortunatly It lacked some detail, especially in the wooden structures & joinery which was a major feature. The internal wooden balcony with the built in bench was poorly executed. The stairs and banisters were of standard (3 bed semi) stock. The furnishishing is slightly immature and unfinnished looking, even though I love their L-shaped couch (coz I have something similar). I understand the budget was tight, but it really shows in the final product.
I still really like it & it would be difficult to justify spending much more on a holiday home. However, â‚¬1,500 for a week sounds like quite a bit and would be justified only by a really top class luxurious house (in my opinion – & I am not aware of current rates).
