Can’t speak highly enough of this place: the food is all organic and either home-grown or home-made and absolutely delicious, and the couple who run it are the nicest people in the world! Such generous, welcoming hosts; enthusiastic about what they do, and eager to explain their techniques and ingredients. The prosciutto (I’m told; I’m a vegetarian!) was the best anyone at the table had ever tasted, and we were shown a piece curing which was really interesting. We saw the olive trees just starting to grow this year’s crop and tasted some of last year’s, which were unlike any I’d had before and had a caramelised sugar aftertaste: delicious to eat whole, and the oil they produce won gold in an international competition including entries from Greece and Italy. We bought a few bottles!
There were fresh home-made cheeses, home-grown figs, and home-brewed liqueurs, too: cherry, walnut, blueberry, and a spirit with 30 different herbs in it! The main course was roast lamb, beef, and potatoes with a dressed salad (again, all perfectly prepared and home-produced), plus courgette fritters, vegetable soup, and slices of grilled aubergine for me, so vegetarians are very well catered-for, too. Dessert was a lovely, cinnamony apple strudel.
And their home-made wine was wonderful - particularly the red, again with a caramelised sugar aftertaste but certainly not over-sweet.
We spent quite a while chatting after dinner, hearing more about the brewing and curing methods. Before we left, we had a look around the apartments they had just finished building ready for guests: can’t imagine a more perfect place to stay for anyone who loves food and drink.
