This place is a real treasure. We were welcomed by the owners (a very nice couple), who showed us around and made us feel immediately at home.
The rooms are huge. I had never stayed at a place with so big rooms. All I can say about the bed is that I am planning to buy a similar one for my house, because it was extremely confortable. Our bathroom had a very interesting shower - open space, with a glass wall and a wooden deck floor. Our kids simply loved it!
There is a very nice swimming pool (I was told its called an infinity pool, since two sides (the ones with the nice view of the valley) have no ledge, but end in a kind of waterfall), and also a pool for the kids.
Besides the nice touch of having a complementary basket of fruits and biscuits in the room, the breakfast was a very pleasant surprise - there was a very big selection to choose from, everything was well presented and there were quite a few things that looked locally sorced or homemade.
Overall, I recomend it wholeheartedly.
