I was there for the annual Olive Festival and this was great place to stay over for the weekend. Lovely spacious room with a balcony. Great breakfasts and the hosts, Steve and Kay, were very friendly and helpful.

This B&B is in a lovely position next to the river, you eat breakfast on the covered terrace looking out across the river to vineyards and mountains in the distance. Kay & Steve are both very friendly and make you feel at home.Fantastic value for money.

The location and amenities were lovely and the hosts were nice and kind. However, the AC (which the owner assured me serves as a heater as well) heating function stopped working about halfway through the night and that morning before my race was an incredibly cold one. The bathtub was also out of working order (I was not notified of...

We went to a wedding at Allesverloren, so decided to look for accommodation that was near enough to the wine estate, but had a nice country atmosphere for a decent price. Such a lovely surprise, where we were welcomed by our friendly host, who showed us around quickly and welcomed us to their place, and to please relax and enjoy...

Be prepared to camp here on a slope (beautifully lawned) with no water on the site. Depending where you pitch your tent, you have to walk a couple of 100 meters to fetch water or to visit the ablution which seems to be still in an unfinished state. Coming not cheap at a daily rate per person and electricity (laid...

HI. Thanks for your comments, as we have just opened our caravan/camping site they are much appreciated, and I would like to take this opportunity to address the issues you have raised.

“We were upstairs, so if you book, and have bad knees or a bad back, ask for the room downstairs. There is also a family room - but best to think carefully about bringing children that can't swim. Check with the owners first - their first concern is safety.”
