From the very beginning, before we even arrived, Roberta was thoughtful and kind and helped us in several ways. The house and room were lovely and the surrounding garden is beautifully appointed and landscaped; however, it is very easy to walk to town so one has the best of both worlds in being centrally located but with a strong feel of countryside. Roberta exceeds as a host in her rich knowledge of the area: she is an elegant one-woman tourist information centre. The breakfast was astonishingly good.
