Our visit began with a very warm, charming and friendly welcome from host Christine. There are only 4 rooms, but each is spacious with very elegant decor and huge, comfortable beds and lovely quality linen. Everything was spotless. The rooms overlook well-mown lawns and whilst you dine, you can watch various native birds and hares gambol in the the grass. Christine was exceptionally attentive and most interested to partake in interesting discussions over coffee and later with pre-dinner drinks. She was delightful serving us and explaining the ingredients in each course. The cuisine was utterly superb from Swiss host and chef, Robi, who is equally charming. He is very creative with his combinations of vegetables, sauces, cheeses and herbs to accompany the main ingredient. Everything was cooked to perfection and presented with Michelin-star quality. This is a place to come to relax and unwind and visit again and again.
