What an excellent property. Everything has been done to a very high standard . The accommodation, modern with amazing views. There is a large pool and fabulous common areas. The food, prepared by the owners was restaurant quality.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning in cooler weather to enjoy the fires and ambience.
We had the most relaxing and peaceful stay. The scenery is outstanding in the most beautiful accommodation. The communal living area is so inviting and comfortable and a lovely place to be in either warm or cold weather. Each apartment is spacious and very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The kitchen area in the apartments is not suitable for cooking but breakfasts and dinners cooked by the hosts are outstanding. The bedroom is very comfortable and the view from the bedroom was spectacular. Rob and Marina are extraordinary hosts who go above and beyond to make guests feel at home. The food is top restaurant quality and service is outstanding. We came here for peace and relaxation and our stay absolutely exceeded our expectations.

Everything was excellent. Owners made us feel very welcome. Beautiful food and views. Very clean. The thing that would top it off in winter would be an outdoor spa.
