Stayed at this beautiful location with great expectations of coming home swimming, but alas this did not happen think it could be me. Location on the side of a mountain with beautiful scenery. Breakfast x4 and had one evening meal all food was excellent in a very relaxed dining room. Have full use of kitchen upstairs during our stay was fantastic. Do not have a fear of water but trying for years to learn to swim and had high hopes that here I would succeed but am still the same two strokes and then down i go. Trevor and Lynette are both very welcoming but be aware you will pay up in full a month before you go normally its deposit and then pay balance on departure.
