And that is because it is brilliant!
We've just come back from a trip of about 8 days through France and Spain and this is the place we all agreed we'd really love to come back to - but we'd love to be there for more than one evening!
Carstens is a wonderful and caring host, brilliantly helpful with any information etc. The rooms are gorgeous and the attention to detail, from the beautiful roses and other blooms in the vase in the bedroom, the nice toileteries, decent hairdryer.....the list goes on and on!
Plus, they're are a lot of public rooms which you can relax in - or as in our case, we headed straight out into the garden to enjoy the wonderful views. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed on the night of arrival (we knew this well in advance) and our wonderful host was not flummoxed at all by us arriving with bread and cheese etc. for a home made evening picnic - he very kindly got the glasses, plates etc out for us.
For those arriving by motorbike (as we did) we were able to park our bikes on the level just round the corner in front of the church (the lady who lives next to the church appears to be something of a motorbike enthusiast.....she certainly gave us the thumbs up!).....or there is a small car park just a little further back up the road.
The place is pretty safe......we think our friend left a travel wallet with his passports inadvertantly on his bike.....and it was still there when he returned in the morning!
