Welcoming friendly hosts in an immaculate attractive home with a surprisingly amazing outdoor environment with meandering stone path, waterfalls, ponds, seating areas, gazebo and even a hammock for an afternoon nap... What's not to like? Add to that a delicious breakfast with stimulating conversation with other guests and/or the hosts and you are almost there at everything one would want... More

Healthy breakfasts with fresh fruits, granola, and yogurt to start followed by omelettes and French toast the days we were there. We really enjoyed the garden, particularly the glider big enough for all four in our party to relax, talk, enjoy wine and cheese and watch the sun set while listening to the waterfall. So sorry I didn't bring my... More
