Faraway cottage is absolutely gorgeous! Set out amongst the hills with just the birds and the animals.
Anette and Robert provide guides and maps for hikes and cycling routes, great recommendations for restaurants (tried Karoux and Mo & Rose) in the area and a fun selection of boardgames for the days you want to spend at the cottage - and believe me, there were plenty of those! You don't want to move! The bed is so comfy, the bath is so spectacular!
As it was winter though the bath water stayed about lukewarm and the gas heater had been run out by previous visitors. However, Anette was incredibly helpful, especially that her husband was unexpectedly away!
Of course we had a tasting too! The grappas are strong to say the least but interest the palate. I highly applaud the wines - especially "Heavenly Chaos"! The Shiraz was beautiful too (bought a bottle to open in a celebratory year) and the Carah was a perfect balance of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvigon.
Really spectacular all-round! Gorgeous views, warm blankets, awesome bathtub and lots of relaxation and fun! This place is a MUST!!!
Thank you Anette (=
