We had the fortune to be told about Villa Shimha by a close friend who recommended it. From the minute we started down the path to the villa, my excitement grew as I realised it was on the edge of the gorge with a spectacular view. As we entered, I felt like I did not want to leave! It was not just a hotel room, it was a spiritual space which had been created with great care and thoughtfulness for our comfort and relaxation. The villa felt luxurious but not pretentious, stylish but not trendy, and every perceived need was catered for. The windows round 3 sides meant we were bathed in natural light with total privacy. We could hear the water chattering away below and we instantly sat in the big comfy chairs on the verandah and felt like we were home.....aah, now we could relax and restore our souls. The service was faultless, and discreet. The breakfasts were exquisite. The bed was heavenly. Quirky little local restaurants were recommended and thoroughly enjoyed. It is far enough out of the town centre to enjoy the quietness, but close enough to enjoy a quick trip in for the buzz of village life. The view across the gorge to the rice paddies on the other side encouraged us just to sit in peace. It was hard to leave the villa, though on active days, we went white water rafting, cycling and mountain climbing within the vicinity with the helpful organisation of the management who set it all up. We just asked and it was organised efficiently and simply. We plan to return and hope to spend more time there on the next trip. We wish to thank Julie and staff for a truly restorative and soul warming break in the lovely Villa Shimha and hope to be back as soon as we can.
