From the minute you arrive at the top of the plateau and are greeted with a smile and a welcome drink, you know that you've escaped to somewhere special and in truth, those moments never stop your whole time there.
From watching the sun setting while you enjoy evening canapés in front of the fireplace, to the five or seven course degustations and scrumptious breakfasts. Sitting in a jacuzzi and watching birds of prey on the winds, playing pool or browsing through an amazingly varied and fascinating book collection. There's also the tennis court, the mountain bikes and some well mapped out hiking or trail-running to be done if you're so inclined (& we were).
So yes the location is wonderfully remote, the food divine, the rooms well appointed and the activities varied but honestly, its the staff that make it perfect. They really go so far above and beyond and we remain very grateful for the attentive and professional service.
In summary, all I can say is we weren't even half-way down the bumpy track back down the mountain before I was consulting my diary to book again!
