    Mike & Marietta are perfect hosts. Very welcoming, very friendly, could not do enough for us. Accommodation is very clean and comfortable, lovely garden, great views. Fantastic breakfasts. Very relaxing place to stay. Vineyards close, lots of interesting things to do. Can not rate it too highly. Pool is a bonus on a very hot day.

    Highly recommend Mike as a fishing guide. My husband had a lifetime experience fishing with Mike. Their accomodation they have set up is both fully comfortable and very nice. I highly recommend this lodge and B and B.
