At the hotel
Don’t expect plasma screens; this is a basic boutique B&B geared towards simple pleasures (but there is air-conditioning and free WiFi throughout). There are enchanting gardens surrounding the house, and kitchenettes with hobs and a stocked mini-fridge in rooms.
Our favourite rooms
There are only four to choose from, but if you’re after privacy, request the stand-alone suite down the fruit tree-lined path from the main house. It’s a beamed, whitewashed space with a working fireplace, a vast king-size bed and a kids' bed secreted in a little loft space at the top of a wooden ladder. The shuttered French doors open onto a private patio.
Lined with potted palms and geraniums, there’s an unheated pool ensconced in a sprawling terrace, overlooking the surrounding fields and farmland.
Snacks and wine to top up your fridge – there are no meals served at the hotel.
Three-night minimum stay.
Cots are €25 a night; extra beds, €45. The owners’ two children live on site, and more are always welcome. There’s a trampoline, a small playground, a ping-pong table and high chairs.
