    The hospitality was above anything I have experienced before. Angie & Garth provided local and country recommendations that were very helpful. We shared a lovely evening with our host and fellow travelers discussing travel and current events. Angie & Garth provided evening appetitizers and wine. We also arranged to have a delicious dinner on site. Breakfast and dinner included foods from their garden and everything was outstanding. I would recommend staying with Angie & Garth.
