  • The. Bed.

  • Every corner of the property is beautiful.

  • This isn’t a true minus, but you will need a car or a wad of cash for cabs.

    Restored 100-year old rustic country inn.

  • Health & Wellness

    No

  • Restaurant

    No

  • Bar

    Not in the straight-forward sense, but they have a bar for specific occasions - for example, Saturday night's cheese and wine hour.

  • Minibar

    No, but they did leave a bottle of wine out to welcome our arrival.

  • Children

    You could bring them, but you'll probably have a better time if you leave them at home.

  • Price

    Moderate and completely worth it considering that breakfast is included every day and that there was wine and cheese on the Saturday evening.
