This is a wonderful place. A working ranch with horses, cows, chickens, etc. They have lush gardens with beautiful flowers and herbs that grow like hedges. Fig trees with ripe figs just there for the picking (it's OK to pick) along with olive trees and grape vines. The hosts and their employees are special people that just exude love. A special mention goes out to Angie who helped us out of a little jam we got ourselves into. We stood in the Cottage,the accommodations are rustic, no TV but who cares. The breakfasts prepared by the owner are divine and the company around the breakfast table was indeed friendly and intellectually stimulating. If you are not inclined towards a communal breakfast they will bring yours right to your room. They also produce an estate Sauvignon Blanc that is to die for. This is just a wonderful place run by wonderful people you can't miss here.
