Stayed there in May 2005. A very short stay, but we were so impressed that memories are still vivid eight years on.
Fantastic location. Welcoming staff. Rustic accommodation. Excellent food and more than excellent dessert. Wine from winery some two hundred yards downhill. Many of the diners were not guests of the hotel. On this one, all credits go to the chef of that time.
We promised to return. It is a promise long overdue, but one that will be fulfilled soon.
