Set in quiet bush, off the beaten track, Abode de Fleur is owned and managed by a delightful couple, Jan & John Reece who really put customer service at the top of the list. Home-made baking (including beside the bed with tea and coffee) and a fine breakfast complimented the charmingly furnished bedroom, decorated in Victorian cottage style. The weather... More
