We stayed in this beautiful guesthouse in January. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed and a lovely bathroom. From our private veranda we looked out on a lush garden and sparkling pool. Our hosts were friendly and helpful and breakfast was outstanding. We stayed for two nights but could have stayed longer.

A very nice, clean and tastefully decorated B&B. Bed, perfect, breakfast very nice and delicious. Only minor is the price / quality, this B&B is compared to similar B&B's on Garden and route more then 50% more expensive. If your willing to pay for it, we can recommend it, because we had a very pleasant stay.

Lovely rooms with private veranda looking out to a shaded garden with pool. Off road secure parking, warm welcome and safe to walk around to numerous restaurants. Excellent home prepared breakfast with fresh fruits, yoghurt, muesli and home made bread etc, with hot options too. The host kindly offers a glass of Muscadel port wine too. Try it. It's lovely
