Lovely, quiet and peaceful. The owners are extremely pleasant and friendly. The rooms are big, very well furnished and the swimming pool is an extra (big) bonus. The WiFi connection is very strong. Unforgettable experience!

Just move away somewhat from the main road, as here, to feel isolated, in silence, protected by nature. Even the sound of the rain on the awning of the terrace give you here a feeling of well being. Very nice place, with amazing rear mountain view. Room are large and comfortable. Team is very friendly. You will feel at home.

Eileen and Michael are both very sweet. You must have a car for this location, quite far from Beau Vallon. If you want to be close to Beau Vallon, this location maybe a little too far, if you want to stay in a quiet hilltop location then this location is perfect. Toast, eggs, butter, jam, fruit & coffee are served...

A lovely house on a hill. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms were big and well equipped. Meals were served on a terrace looking up on a lush mountain. Breakfast was good with adequate selection.

We enjoyed the refreshing swimming pool. the perfect meal in the evening and the delicious breakfast . The next day the lady of the house gave us a tourguide in her wellmaintained garden ans explaned us everything about herbs and fruitplants. Know that to reach this place you need a car.
