Fabulous, well appointed, tastefully decorated villas in a beautiful vineyard setting. Kids loved the pool, tennis court and spacious grassy areas. Other times they have enjoyed the kayaks and fishing. In the evening, it's so cosy having a gas fire and during the day there is a great indoor outdoor flow. It's unique and an absolute favourite place for us...

Great place. Excellent service. Layout would be great for families or groups. A few very minor finishing touches that would be nice for travellers; accessible power points in bedrooms, rubbish bins in kitchens and bedside reading lamps (please)!

We needed to find a place to stay for the night and looked online and saw this place, when we arrived we were thrilled with the location and the warm welcome we received the Bachs were really nice and clean and really spacious we wished we had found this place before.

We stumbled upon this accommodation online when we didn't have a booking for the following night. The room was spacious, clean, comfortable and had an amazing view of the vineyards and the river. Our sumptuous prawn and salad dinner was perfect on the outdoor deck!

Our first slight dissapointment when we arrived was the gravel roads. The roads to the cabins (?) are gravel and very narrow and I certainly would not...

Accommodation is modern and spacious, my friend and I each have our own room and en...
