A wonderful small winery, with hand crafted wines and eau de vies, well worth a visit and tasting conducted by the owner, just outside the village

From the other reviews here it sounds like the hosts are great, and that might be because they did not have children to stay. We popped in to the winery on a weekend away with friends, and we had six children aged 5-8 between us three couples. The hosts were most certainly not very friendly, and after the kids ran around the garden a bit (and made a bit of noise as kids do, nothing unacceptable) we were actually asked in no uncertain terms to leave, immediately (after purchasing a few bottles first, of course). We even had to listen to the wife shout at the husband to get rid of us. The entire experience was very unpleasant, and I would not recommend that you visit there if you have small children. It is certainly not child friendly, be warned. (We had a much friendlier reception and visit at the McGregor Winery up the road, where the very same children were welcomed and not seen as a problem at all.)

These visitors (3 couples, with 6 children) came to a wine-tasting only and were not guests staying with us in our accommodation. The children soon started exploring the farm and jumped into the pool. As we had guests staying in a cottage next to the pool and as the use of our pool is exclusive to our guests we asked the parents to please take their children out of the pool and bring them back to the tasting area. The parents were reluctant to do so as they didn't want to spoil the fun for their children. As hosts of the guests staying with us in our accommodation we felt we had to consider their interests first.
