Found this hotel online, booked and arrived late afternoon. They got our booking slightly wrong and our room was cold overnight as heating didn't work in it. That's the minor negatives out the way. Huge room found which was enormous and had a bath big enough for us all! Great space, own little garden and huge roof top terrace. Very...

We spent 4 nights at this beautiful hotel and it was hard to leave. The setting is delightful and peaceful and the decor tasteful throughout. It is luxurious in many ways but with a rustic simplicity which we loved. Our room was more like a small villa with loads of space, excellent facilities, very comfortable and with a wonderful balcony....

Dear guest, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your comments with other Tripadvisor users. Let me please answer your comments. Horseback riding.

We love to escape to this slightly remote resort. The rooms are beyond amazing. Love jumping into the spas in cold weather. The bountiful breakfast is enough to last the whole day. It was also the only hotel breakfast in Europe that still has my favorites of smoke salmon and champagne. We always travel off season so are not able...

The surrounding area is gently rolling hills with olive trees and small oak trees the larger mountains are in the distance. The nearest town is about 10km away though is an easy and quick drive. The rooms are...

Fully recommend a visit, fabulous setting, beautifully decorated rooms in rustic style, food and service superb. A little off the beaten track but that suited us just fine to relax whilst being pampered in the glorious winter sunshine.
