It's a hotel stay but with all the charm and personal welcome of someone's home. Set in amazing grounds away from the main town, its gorgeous. Such a welcoming host and her team make you feel that you're staying somewhere very exclusive. Every attention to detail. Generous breakfast and the room we stayed in was really well decorated and equipped with coffee machine and teapot! A lovely place to rest after a busy day being a tourist!
