    Very pleasant operators, but dated decor and limited facilities. Quiet and a bit remote from restaurants or other services if you don't have a vehicle. Wonderful breakfast, wide variety of options. Nice grounds but don't think I'd swim in the "Roman"--water looked a bit funky.More

    I was there with the family feels more like a classical boutique hotel than a B&B. Service is excellent the kids enjoyed the trampoline and pool. The venue offers lots of tranquility. We will certainly use this venue again when we are in PE.
