Our Review following our visit.
This fabulous property has been visited by our team and is amazing, the owner is a designer and has made almost all of the furniture and fittings throughout the house all to a very high standard taking into consideration the needs of all guests.
As you enter the property there are various sculptures in and around the garden many with lighting to enjoy your al fresco dining every evening.
The kitchen is all hand made incorporating top of the range appliances, the kitchen table and chairs being extremely heavy and very sturdy but of a very unique design.
All of the beds throughout the property have been hand made - all quite outstanding. Even the bath in the ensuite to the master bedroom is handmade in metal with a window overlooking the vinyards, so ingenious!
This is an ideal property for a family looking for a bit of away from the madding crowds and the hustle and bustle of the seaside towns yet within driving distance of numerous places of interest. Horse riding available locally.
