How does one judge this? It is better than most 5* hotels. And add to that the engaging personalities of Ian and Miguel (and even the 2 chiens) and you have a heady mix of a home from home, without the clutter but with a whole panoply of taste and style.
Our visit started with a 'Hello, Marilyn' as we stopped outside the house. Ian and Miguel were car shuffling and Miguel noticed the UK registration at the time we had said we expected to arrive. 2 hours later we were still winding down, having had a few glasses of wine.
The room we had booked (the Art Deco suite) was (is) magnificent; a testament to the care Ian and Miguel have lavished on the property.
Ian and Miguel are superb hosts; even my closest friends could not have made us more welcome. The small matter of having to pay is almost an irrelevance.
You have to visit this property. And talk to Ian about the cars he has owned.
We cannot recommend this B&B highly enough.
