Thankfully there's lots to do and see in the area, and the adjacent wine bar, restaurant, library are all available for lounging and relaxing. Not to mention the large and spacious covered, furnished private deck in front of our rooms! But. . . can't deny it. . . though the bedrooms in our 2 bedroom unit were big enough (and had superior beds and bedding), the living/dining room space is very small. Also. . .though we are strong and fit and able to carry our own bags, you have to park quite far (across the bridge, at the Monastery) from the house in which we were lodged--the "units" are all standalone or triplex type houses--and there are quite a few stairs. Probably, if we had asked and/or in the high season, porter service would be available for someone who needs help with luggage. But this site may not work for someone who can't handle stairs. Also, a large spa is being built--and it should be very nice when it opens--but I really hope the "small is beautiful" ambience of the place won't be lost when the spa is opened and fully operational.
Beautiful suite, fantastic view, large outdoor deck fronting the place, overlooking the entire valley and mountain beyond. Charming restaurant and wine bar with a narrow balcony leading off the breakfast room (good for pairs of guests enjoying both the fabulous breakfast buffet and the view). Staff extremely welcoming and helpfiul. Loved the library, and would hang out there if the weather was poor. (It was lovely, even though mid-March for my stay). Enjoyed a not-too-strenuous hike to a viewpoint opposite. Served a glass of sherry when we arrived. How sweet is that!
