About the neighbourhood
The cottage is located on a boutique farm with a small vineyard, within easy walking distance of the village but with the tranquility of a rural location.
Getting around
We recommend the use of a hire car, however guests have used exclusively services like Uber very successfully. The cottage is within an easy walk to the village and the 'Wine Tram', which a lot of people use for taking them around the local vineyards for wine tastings.
