We could not have found a more enjoyable place to relax. This is the style of mansion one would like to get accustomed to... lots of space, one of the most beautiful gardens we have ever been to and a breathtaking view of the mountains. Extremely quiet and relaxing. The hosts (German expats) seem to enjoy nothing more than pampering guests - the sensational breakfast alone is amazing.
Our favorite spot: the large swing next to the pool. We could have spent days there. (Only we had to get up and eat every now and then.)
There are some adorable cats there but no children which makes the place extra quiet and relaxing.
