We were fortunate enough to be hosted by Petra and Reinhard for a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
On arriving, there was a warm welcome from Petra and a personalised message on their blackboard, not to mention our very own carpark (who needs expensive valets when you have this!).
After a walk around the lovely property and then further up the road to the falls we sat down to a absolutely delightful meal. Again, more personalised treatment, great conversation and excellent hosts - what more could we want. But the night didn't end there, a visit to see the gloworms, although not many due to the time of year, but enough to be happy with, and then our very own relaxing outdoor bath....wow....couldn't ask for more.
A great breakfast and picnic the next day, and for dinner, a lesson in Paella, including a lesson in drinking tequila shots!
Everything was to our liking, and Petra, Reinhard and Jen were fabulous hosts, we couldn't have asked for more. If you couldn't be relaxed in this environment, you couldn't be relaxed anywhere.
Thank you so much for making our weekend so special.
