What a great place - tucked in an out of the way village, close to excellent local winery and boasting a terrific chef. When I politely explained a v boring wheat allergy, they smiled and said 'No problem… our chef likes a challenge!". He produced a delicious meal topped off with fantastic wine. Altogether a wonderful treat when I least...

We stayed for 2 nights recently and loved it. The owners were more than helpful telling us about a really pretty beach that we really wouldn't have found otherwise. Delicious food and wine - the rooms were very comfortable and the prices very reasonable. The house is beautiful - We would recommend it.

We had a great stay in this out-of-the-way hotel, and the care given by the owners of the hotel to us was absolutely top notch.

“There are currently 4 rooms available (soon more....we hope). All are excellent and personalized. There is one suite where I was lucky to stay but I saw also the other rooms and can assure are of very high standard. The rooms have no air conditioning and you will soon notice that is not needed. The Arielli breeze and the thick wall of the luxury estate offer a fresh oasis in the torrid Summer days...”
