Although we stayed here for only one night, we've been talking about it ever since. The house itself is just gorgeous - the deco is fabulous, but it still feels relaxed, comfortable and welcoming. Our rather eccentric and taciturn host nonetheless provided us with a wonderful evening meal, with course after course surprising and delighting us. Breakfast the next morning was a lavish affair - with homemade yoghurt, fresh fruit, berries and nuts.
If you're looking for something a bit different, a bit special, that will stay with you for years to come, this is the place to go.
