We arrived here tired at lunchtime and were treated to Maria's generous hospitality - a platter freshly prepared and served on our balcony with house (produced by the owner) wine at no charge. Once we had caught our breath we took a stroll in the gardens - full of seasonal fruits and flowers that Maria harvests for breakfast. The following day we had eggs cooked to perfection (Maria's chickens) while we were looking out over the vineyards. Evenings were always enhanced by drinks with Denham, the owner, from the extensive free bar or a copious amount of his own excellent wine.We will return. Maria is an angel!
