Thanks for your feedback, Katie. I'm surprised about the chopping boards, as there were two of them! Will ask José to check. And I will provide a toaster for the next time :)
I never felt the house to be dark (lived there myself for 5 years) but shaded in the afternoon, yes, which in a hot climate like the one we have in Alicante is rather a blessing, as in summer it can get extremely hot if the house is South facing. Sadly there is no place for a pool (wouldn't that be great?!) . Thanks again for your stay and we hope to have you again. Kind regards.
