What a wonderful experience from start to finish. We booked in on Friday at around lunchtime on a glorious summer’s day. We were greeted by Andreas and immediately felt at home… Sun loungers, champagne in hand and a view to die for. The breakfast was so delicious and filling… Oh and the freshest rolls and crispy bacon was so delicious....

We stayed here for 4 nights in February and had a wonderful time. Beautiful setting with lovely gardens and pool. Friendly, personal service from all the staff but Andreas in particular who went out of his way to make our stay special. We would definitely recommend this guest house.

Me and my girlfriend stayed three days in the Platinum guesthouse. Good location and fantastic view on the surrounding mountains and sea. The room is spacious and comfortable. Breakfast is wow. Delicious bread, muesli, eggs, meat, cheese and fruit, served on the table between our room and the swimming pool. Very friendly service. Highly recommended.
