Our aim is to give our guests a relaxing and inspiring holiday, and we hope you will feel part of a living space while staying here.
The tranquil ambience is balanced by constant activity, with frequently a project on the go and new ideas being acted upon.
Guests are always welcome observe or participate in the daily goings-on, just as we share our knowledge of our relationship with our smallholding, as well as the places and beaches to visit on this beautiful and unspoilt corner of Europe.
Facilities for Children
Children are very welcome here. There are many facilities for play, and open space to spread their wings. The cottages are 150m from the road, along which pass maybe 10 vehicles per day, eliminating traffic safety and pollution concerns, and you can park close to the cottages.
We are happy to eat communally and share "pot luck" meals sometimes, or equally, your space is your own. We often have pizza evenings in our "enchanted space", adjoining our traditional bread oven when we also bake our bread, You are more than welcome to participate and learn how.
We can provide you with organically grown seasonal vegetables from our garden, fruit from our trees, and eggs from our free-range hens, when available.
