Having stayed there quite a number of times, the consistency of the beautiful and comfortable product Leon and Denis offer is notable. The rooms are spotless and amply equipped, the common areas are warm and looked after with great care and detail. Gardens and lushly decorated courtyards with fountains, flowers and birdsong bring a natural comfort to this historic guest...

Stayed one evening with a group cycling tour. Room was comfy and cosy with an exquisite mosaic bathroom floor. Leon the owner and his partner Denis really made the experience though through their warmth and generosity.

The charming hosts run a honesty bar system, this together with the quaint quirky setting of the establishment allows you to go back to a time when everything was just good and simple. So refreshing. Only downside - our room and shower could have been a bit more spacious, however - clean and fully functional.

We stayed with Leon and Denis following a recommendation from my parents (who have been twice) and were very glad we visited. The style is a little eclectic, cosy and comfortable, full of interesting books and artwork and we could quite easily have spent several days relaxing there (sadly we only had one night). We sadly didn't get a chance...

This is a return visit to this delightful guesthouse. Leon, the owner made us most welcome and our garden facing room was comfortable and quiet. Just a short walk from all the main amenities, shopping and eateries on the busy Route 62. This is a perfect tranquil stopover for travellers.

We had booked to only stay one night on our journey along route 62 and what a find this was. The house is old charm and beautifully done with vintage items.

A wonderful rustic guesthouse located well for walking to eateries etc. Leon & Denis were both friendly and helpful. Good value for money - lovely gardens with lots of space to sit out & relax and enjoy the birds & sunshine. Ask for a garden room! We will go back.
