    That is our dog called Salto, we rescued him from the streets as a puppy. He is very loving and dearly misses, us his owners. He is NOT allowed inside the house and PLEASE NEVER FEED THE DOG specially any tit bits whilst you’re dining at the table. Excuse the caps but we do not want the dog to learn to beg for food from the table from our guests or ourselves. He will happily guard the house for you during your stay BUT if you are not comfortable with dogs just inform the housekeeper and she will keep him on her grounds.Thank You :)
