  • The cottage is amazing!!!! Extremely cozy, comfortable and warm, to the point...

    The cottage is amazing!!!! Extremely cozy, comfortable and warm, to the point we actually struggled to go outside. Beautiful fireplace and massive bathtub. Its a 3' walk to town and you can always lend the bikes and ride around the vineyards. It exceeded all our expectations, perfect spot for a romantinc getaway :)

  • Absolutely lovely

    Absolutely lovely. Couldn't wish for more. We were only able to stay one night, but would have loved to stay longer to make the most of this beautiful cottage. All beautifully appointed with everything we could possibly need, from lovely soap and soft bath robes to breakfast provisions, magazines, DVDs and bikes - not to mention the open fire. Perfect. Thanks for such a lovely stay. We will definitely be returning!

  • The property is great

    The property is great. Very comfortable and in a great location. The little touches such as chocolate in the fridge made it even more welcoming.
