Villa Howden is a lovely place to stay. The Villa is quite spacious with lots of areas to sit and relax, read a book from the library or play various games. The Villa and the rooms are decorated in a french style, plenty of room in the bedrooms with a small verandah looking out over the property. We were welcomed... More

If you are looking for a relaxing stay in a boutique French inspired Villa this place is for you. The grounds / building are unique and the service outstanding (special mention to Richard who went above and beyond). Highly recommend to others.

Firstly, I am writing about dinner as we did not stay overnight. The building itself is beautiful and had a sense of magic on a cold evening. However, the dining room too was chilly. It didn't help that there were only a handful of people dining. The food itself was local, expensive for what it was and somewhat ordinary. In... More
