"Highly recommended. "

Beautiful location and wonderful hosts. Very welcoming and food was simply delicious. Surpassed all expectations and found the region to be stunning with historic villages in delightful countryside. Loved every minute of my visit.

"Special cooking weekend"

This is my husband's review - he was the one cooking with Clive!

- Thanks to Clive and Maki, a delightful stay in a lovely old farmhouse conversion.

- A hands-on experience of cooking with Clive as very friendly teacher extraordinaire and me as student, to prepare and serve two three-course meals in Andalusian style (Mediterranean cuisine). WOW!

- Easy going but professional, it should be a must do for keen amateur chefs (or those trying to be, like me). It was also a much appreciated birthday treat for me.

- We were spoiled by Maki who made sure everything was in apple-pie order throughout. In all a super short stay.

"Rural Laid-back Restfulness"

This accommodation is in a traditional building with great character, set in a lovely rural setting with great views. This is a truly relaxing place, with Clive and Maki ensuring you can see the best of the surrounding towns, attractions and experiences, if you don't want to just laze by the pool. The cooking experience teaches much about technique, from filleting fish to even chopping herbs. Clive is very organised, clear and gets you involved in hands-on cooking at each stage for delivering the evening meal for all guests, but without being under pressure; focused but stress-free.
