Incredible hosts! Fantastic breakfast. Stefan and Nikki made us feel right at home. Nothing was too much trouble for them; made our restaurant booking and provided storage for my mountain bike. Our room was clean, very comfortable and beautifully decorated. We will certainly come back to stay again. Also looking forward to theirwine-making exploits.
