Trip advisor's highest rating is 5 - this B&B deserves a 10+! Generous & gratuitous hosts. Very clean & comfortable surroundings. Elegant breakfasts. Great conversations. David & Tatiana are truly wonderful people who go above & beyond to help you feel welcome in their lovely home.

Such a strange comment that you know the reply you are going to receive, so we won’t disappoint you. Early arrival, Check in time is 2pm and onwards, on a day when all our rooms vacate it is a very... More

My partner and I stayed here for one night and it was our first B&B experience and we both loved it. The Villa was exceptionally clean and the rooms were spacious with their own ensuite and TV so you could have your own privacy. The bed was also super comfortable and we loved the attention to detail in the room,... More

Hello Vicky, thank you for your review. You clearly have very little understanding of the logistics of running a B&B, the latest time to join breakfast is set at 8:30 to allow people approximately 1 hour to have their breakfast and then pack and depart by check out time which is 10am. This then allows us to do our shopping,... More
