Beautiful location, great food and lovely people

The location is truly stunning. Everywhere you looked was beautiful from the cobbled streets to the lush landscapes. The food was fresh and delicious with plenty of choice. There were loads activities to do and also free bike hire. Our room was great, very charming and roomy.

The friendly Sunflower Team really helped to make this retreat special too. Nothing was too much trouble. If you needed anything (like help if you get lost!) they are only to willing to help out. Thanks Alan, Addie and Guippi...see you soon!
