We have just returned from our visit here for the third year ! Absolutely love it here. So relaxing. Everything you could possibly need. Spotlessly clean and bright rooms. Fantastic choices for breakfast...and the most amazing hosts ! Mal and Fran will make sure you have the best stay ever. But be warned....if you go once....you WILL go back...
