We stayed at The Nest for three nights and were very warmly received. The full-board package is good value and the views are beautiful. Some rooms appear to be aging a bit, but they are otherwise tidy and clean. Overall, a very relaxing getaway.

We had one week stay. Beautiful views of the mountains. Gardens well kept. Tennis, bowls swimming pool and play area for children and walks within the extensive grounds. We stayed in a rondeval which was adequate for 2 (no air con only a fan, no fridge, or safe). Staff were excellent, helpful and friendly. Food - breakfast cooked to order, coffee and cake at 11, 4 course lunch at 1pm, afternoon tea and cake at 4pm and 6 corse evening meal (portions were small, but more than adequate). We had a great time, would highly recommend. Ps: there are air con rooms as well.
