We stayed for three nights in a family apartment in the main house - two separate rooms with separate bathroom. Perfect for our family of four. Both the house and setting were straight from the movies. In the evening, we were able to enjoy our meals on a large veranda which is also a great place to sit and read after a day visiting sites. In fact, the choice between enjoying the locale and driving out was not an easy one! While completely in the country, the house is in fact no more than 5 minutes drive from the town with a useful supermarket if like us, you enjoy putting your own picnic together. We were fortunate to be there on completion of the harvest, and being invited to assist with the stirring of the freshly pulped fermenting grapes. A "wow" experience for ourselves and the children, who also enjoyed playing with the dogs and had lots of running around area.
