We loved our stay at Lupus Den Country House. This is a real working farm. Our room looked straight on to the citrus groves. We drove past the huge Simbra cattle that are part of the farm...a great 'away from it all' setting. We stayed in the Kingfisher room, the largest bed we have ever seen welcomed us! Great bathroom and even double shower outside the bathroom.
We had our dinners at Lupus Den. Excellent food cooked by Priscilla our hostess. We choose our wine from the wine list and we were happy.
The breakfast is ordered the night before to make sure you get what you want. Plenty of good food just the way you want it!
It was raining while we were there, but we would have loved to make use of our veranda and the pool. Next Time!
