What our clients say about us!

Amazing wine country experience inside and outside! Over 25 people, who were soon to become one family, via a wedding, spent 3 days together in the most wonderful accommodation.

We looked at spectacular sunsets and fog covered mountain views, laid back in quiet areas, gathered noisily in the huge games room / den, dined in style at the “long table” in the dining room and chatted around the fireplace under the cathedral ceilings, after too many lovely wines.
