Spent one night here - wish it could have been longer. Wonderful setting, with great views. An extremely quiet location amongst the olive groves. Individually designed rooms. Large spacious room...
Spent one night here - wish it could have been longer. Wonderful setting, with great views. An extremely quiet location amongst the olive groves. Individually designed rooms. Large spacious room, with an extremely well fitted bathroom. The facilities were excellent. The outside pool was complimented by an outdoor gym area. There was also a running area. Suggest that mosquito repellent is used around the lake area. The restaurant served superb food and wines, which was supported by a large breakfast, offering a wide choice for all pallets. We could not fault the staff or service.
