What a stunning location. Be taken back in time in lovely surroundings. Enjoying a bubbles on your private terrace was certainly romantic.

The setting was magnificent, the panoramic views exceptional. The property was immaculately presented with luxury touches in unexpected places. The host and hostess, Anne and Ed, could not be more pleasant and the included breakfast was particularly good. The only pity was that our stay was short and more time was needed to fully enjoy the relaxation and solace of the property.
