Reviewed 11 August 2008

I wouldn't usually write a review on somewhere I visited through work, as it isn't my own money, but I had to review this lovely place.

I went with some work colleagues on a paid-for trip last week and found it to be as close to perfect as a place can possibly get. The owners, Phil and Jude, went out of their way to look after us, cooking amazing meals and seeming to instinctively know when we were hungry/thirsty. I would pay serious money for the ricotta pie. The wine served with lunch and dinner was divine (Phil is a wine expert) and ever flowing (I am pregnant so I had to confine myself to the odd tiny sip but Phil and Jude didn't forget me and made me lovely soft drinks so I didn't feel left out). The rooms were like the 'after' of a home improvement show; immaculate, thoughtfully and tastefully decorated (in a very modern way) and so clean. The ensuite bathrooms were huge and a joy to shower in. I ostensibly had the 'worst' room as we drew straws for them and I got the single room, but it was loads nicer than many 5 star superior doubles I have stayed in.

The pool was refreshing and the surrounding countryside lush.

As part of our trip, Phil drove us to some local restaurants and vineyards and he was lovely. The day we left they gave us a gorgeous goodie bag to take home, with olive oil and other treats. I really didn't want to leave!

If you are looking for a place to go for a work bonding trip or simply a big group of you want to get away somewhere you must consider La Madelene. If Phil and Jude open it up as a general guest house (they may already have rooms available on this basis) I would love to come back with my boyfriend for a few days' utter relaxation.
