Our favourite rooms
Flower has zingy lime-green styling; it’s also the only room that has direct access to the pool. Families will appreciate the extra leg-room offered by the Junior Suite.
There's an infinity pool set in the vineyards, with dark wooden decking and vivid blue tiles.
Wellington boots for stomping through the vineyards and olive groves; a nail brush to clean your toes post-grape-squashing; riding boots and jodhpurs for exploring the countryside on horseback.
Guests get free bike hire, a wine tour and a tasting, to help them settle in.
This hotel is better suited to couples - leave the children at home!
