"The properties are all stunning. What we like most is the peace and quiet, the tranquility of the place. Nobody’s rushing around. You can go from one thing to another or just sit down and do nothing. And nothing’s ever overcrowded. You can wander around and think where’s everybody gone and then they all turn up for tea."
