Pasamos un finde perfecto! La casa es grande y comoda, los dueños muy amables, nos ayudaron en todo. Es un lugar perfecto para desconectar de la ciudad y hacer actividades al aire libre. Nosotros hicimos una ruta en bicicleta por la Via Verde, muy divertida, en el pueblo hay alquileres de bici que te recojen al final de la ruta. Además también se puede disfrutar de los distintos rios de la zona.
