Superb Host and Hostess, lovely accommodation and the privacy of a traditional self contained cottage in a beautiful setting. We met so many lovely people in the surrounding areas, ever helpful and always friendly. We discovered unique cuisine especially the Chanfana and sampled excellent local wines, both of which we were fortunate to enjoy along with Colin and Daphne our hosts. Exploratory drives amongst the rural mountainous roads discovering hamlets, villages and towns nestling in gorgeous countryside was without parallel, every turn producing a new vista. In one word - excellent.
