The property is unique. Classic villa with plenty of fascinating objects to admire. We loved our room with its quality carpet, beautiful lamps and most importantly a comfortable bed. Most importantly the warm welcome by the owner plus the timely offer of ' a cuppa' on arrival.

loved this beautiful old home
Such a cool place to stay, lovely people, old worldly charm, log fire, comfy bed and good breakfast. Just one small thing- pillows need replacing they have seen better days and weren’t very comfortable. Yes I would definitely stay again. Thanks
