This was our third visit to Carpe Diem and Patrick and Eric continue to surpass all expectations. We arrived jet lagged and Patrick was kind enough to allow us in to rest a little earlier than normal. The accommodation was, as usual, faultless. We stayed for two nights, with dinner on both nights. It is one of the most wonderful... More
