    We loved the attention to details. Like chocolates and lollies in the room. As well as bottles of water in the fridge. The daily cake baked by our hostess, left for us to enjoy anytime of day! Not to mention the breakfast!!! But we didn’t like the very very soft bed! Had trouble sleeping the 3 nights we were there. Overall, very enjoyable stay, well recommended
