This is a lovely resort, with a small amount of accommodation. Restored outbuildings provided cool, tastefully restored rooms. Very clean and quiet. The Pool was beautiful with a docile little donkey roaming the grounds. The gardens were beautifully kept. The host and hostess had a new baby but were very accommodating and happy to help. Breakfast provided for wide variety of pallets and more than adequate. Dinner could be ordered in the morning and was freshly made in generous proportions to guests requirements. The atmosphere of the resort is quiet and charming.
