“Beautiful terracotta farmhouse dating from 1650, with a central courtyard and lush gardens. Stunning self-catering apartments marry the old and new with real elegance. Fridges are stocked daily with wonderful organic produce from the hotel's orchards. Privacy, style and a truly homely feel.”

Hotel Review

Cool, spacious and gracious: an arched entrance leads to a cobbled courtyard and a Venetian manor house which has been stylishly converted into two separate arch-ceilinged apartments sleeping up to four people, each with its own pool amid lawns and orchards. Tree frogs sing you to sleep at night (and share your pool). Self-catering, but your fridge is stocked with home-made preserves, fresh fruit, bread and local cheeses.
