I arrived with my familiy by coincidence only to be greeted instantaniously with a quiet confidence and warmth that clothes a deeper talent of rare hospitality.The household radiates a glowing openess..a genuine interest ..and an even greater ambition just to service all guests with equal calm and gentility.Within minutes my son Clemens aged 13 was sat quietly in one of many soft chairs embedded with cats and magazines.My wife rapidly submerged in a beautiful bath..whilst I installed myself under Neils monumental bookcase left alone with a pile of books and the scent of gourmet food for company.The standard and mood never let up..we were even invited back to our hosts home with their friends to celebrate New years eve together the folllowing evening ....now that is a sign of a very special household and a very very special oasis...higher than highly recommendable. Many thanks from Anthony Dm and familiy.2010/2011.
