Using sat nav and GPS on the iphone it still took us 2 hours and nearly caused divorce finding this place. It is absolutely IMPOSSIBLE to find. Its on the river, off a main road, but the signage is the size of a packet of ciggarettes. The very helpful host came out on to the road to help us in the end, but there's no parking and by the time we arrived I was more than ready to chug the complimentary wine. Despite all this, the place is well worth finding. Its simply exquisite. We stayed in one of the more basic rooms, with a cool white poured floor and staircase leading up to a bed-deck and tiny roof terrace. The communal breakfast room was stunning, with superb attention to detail, a real champion of interior design and creativity. Its got a little garden, a little hammock and a little pool, together with some lovely old bikes you can borrow to go exploring. Its very unusual, rather quiet, oozing charm, like staying in a work of art, not really a hotel, but friendly and definitely worth the hunt.
