    We stayed over for one night. It was a beautiful place. The view is incredible overlooking the wine yard and mountains. The room was lively. The best thing about this place was the service. The hosts are extremely helpful and friendly would definitely visit again.More

    Great breakaway and well situated in the region. The room can do with an extra dustbin and maybe a small fridge. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast is excellent. The view over the vineyard is a wonderful site to wake up to.More
