The welcome at the Olive Garden is fabulous with welcome drinks and a tour of the cottages and facilities by Gina. The seperate cottages are well appointed with comfortable rooms. Ours had a luxurious bathroom and the second bedroom had an outdoor ensuite with shower, which our teenage children used. We especially liked the log fire when the sun went down as it does get chilly in the winter. Fernand's meals were delicious and excellent value. The location is on the olive farm that Gina and Fernand are developing and we were delighted to be given a small gift of olive oil on our departure. The 'doggy welcoming committee'was great, - just ignore the loud barks as you roll up to reception: both dogs are very friendly and keen to see what you are up to whenever you're out and about.
The swimming pool should be great in summer and there's also a hot tub.
The views over the farm and mountains are great and the peace and quiet is refreshing, and is only a short drive from Robertson.
