Charming and sustainable Tuscan inspired home by the river and park. It may very well be the best accommodation option in town. Our hosts provided a lovely breakfast spread with lots of yummy local produce.

Hilary's strawbale house exceeded our expectations. It is a beautiful house. Nice, open spaces which emanate a feeling of calm and relaxation. The house was squeaky clean and a real pleasure to stay in. Thanks Hilary and Arnie! :)
