  What visitors have said about Palacete de Cázulas
I wanted to thank you for the use of your beautiful house. We had a wonderful time. Before we got there I was a little concerned that it might not live up to expectations but as soon as we got there I was absolutely blown away with how beautiful the house and grounds are. I would be happy to give any future renters an ear full of how beautiful Cazulas is. I am sure that we will be back.

Now that we are home again , I should like to take this opportunity on behalf of my wife and myself, our children and grandchildren to tell you how very much we treasured the week we had at Cazulas. Though our expectations were high, I think that for each and everyone of us they were exceeded by the beauty of the home and the surroundings and how perfect they were for our week together. It was an unforgettable week, made so by the home, the staff and the relaxed atmosphere you have created at Cazulas. We have memories we will treasure for years, indeed decades to come.
