I was welcomed by Bernie with tea, scones and jam. She is a lovely lady, and really makes you feel at home. I had the continental breakfast, which was more than enough, with fruit juice,tea/coffee, fresh fruit - great with Bernie's home made granola sprinkled on it - cereals, yoghurts, scones, home-madecake, bread, jam. Bernie even made me porridge a couple of mornings, and you can get a huge cooked breakfast for a few extra Euro. The house is set up on a hill, so great views all round. Bernie is helpful with choices of places to visit, and as has been said before, nothing was too much trouble. I stayed for 5 nights, and feel as though I have made a good friend. I definately hope to return sometime. Don't hesitate to book, you will not regret it.
