This is a tour of George’s historic home, which is covered in frescoes and has a carved wood ceiling, fireplaces and some decor that is hundreds of years old. There are two levels for viewing, then George and his wife sat me down in their lower level salon and treated me to delicious food and drink. We had a very interesting conversation using Google translate the entire time. It was a real pleasure.

What a wonderful experience today. We were made very welcome by George & his lovely wife. Communication was done through Google translate app. The house is beautiful with lots of info given on the history, & then we were treated to refreshments all homemade. We even took part in a local dance with the hosts. This is one experience not to be missed. Thankyou

George was such a gentleman. He welcomed me into his home and we communicated perfectly using Google translate. His home drinks were also great but do not have too many....they are strong!

The adorable couple that own this beautiful house showed us kindly around their home, and explained using Google translater and a very complete póster. Then they invited us into a very nice room where they had a collection of wines and old cámaras. They even invited us with home made raki, wine, mandarinas and some delicious cierres glasé. We loved it!!!!
