Very clean, comfortable, beautiful environment. Chef Peppa is a lovely person, he makes one feel like the most important person on earth. The only unpleasant thing is that I have to write 200 words in this review. LOL .

The chef and his team are great, there are lovely rooms/houses for staying. It was really like being in a family. Nice restaurant with different courses and local (their own) wine. Probably, it's the safest place in town.

As before, stunning food, great atmospheric rooms and a wonderful host. Chef Peppas could not do more to help with travel arrangements, suggestions of locations to visit and a regular supply of anecdotes

Response from Rod H | Reviewed this property |
We stayed there in September last year and had absolutely no problem in booking. I booked on line and we had a large room for the two of us. The connecting room was free so we could have had that as well.
