Highs & Lows

  • Authenticity and originality. It really feels like you're at the most quintessential home in a spectacular part of nature. Lots of fireplaces and intimate places within the common areas for reading and relaxing.

  • Your stay comes with complimentary breakfast and it was delicious - frittata, pastries, coffee, fruit, orange juice. Really great.

  • Character and charm with class.

  • Walls are thin, it's an old house! It was fine for us but if it's fully packed it might be an issue overhearing other guests.
