    It was a perfect vacation... The lodging was excellent nestled in greens with lots of hiking and biking trails to choose from, all meticulously planned out by the owner Peter. Food was superb, prepared by Carolyn, Peter’s wife who ran the place immaculately. This place is actually perfect or simply lazing around for a few days, sipping on limitless wine and taking a dip in the pool. (more)Ricky Yeung
    Top drawer! (more)Esther Quinlan
    One of the best breaks I have ever had. Carolyn and Peter look after you so well. I am a solo traveler and sometimes you can feel isolated but not this time!!! (more)Margaret Parker

    We had a fantastic time staying in Samoens... The walking was amazing at this time of year: alpine meadows, wildflowers, waterfalls, and glacial landscapes, and not too challenging: we ranged between 500m and 970m ascent in a day. We went rafting on the Giffre on our day off, which was also great. (more)Ross Carne

    Memorable parts? The company of my fellow walkers and the lovely coastal scenery Tips? Take good walking boots and more money than perhaps you might imagine as the suppers were fairly expensive. Local benefits? Helped restaurants, bars, we took a couple of taxis. Our guide explained a lot about the plants and the fragility of the soil. We also learnt about the vines so appreciate the work that goes into their production on the steep slopes! Overall rating? Excellent (more)Alison Fletcher

    From
    €1,057

    Just what I needed! Plenty of wildlife around, the spotted flycatcher leaping through the garden was great, several species of dragonfly by the ford and several hummingbird hawkmoths feeding on the lavender by the pool, all to the tune of blackbirds, turtle doves and a Cetti's warbler! (more)Nigel Scott
    Both my husband and myself loved our week. Lazing by and in the pool late afternoon was lovely and the weather was hot. Being able to walk littlle or miles or not at all, was good -there is no compulsion to be super active, though you can! If you want to be totally catered for and live in verdant peace for a week, but have company too-this is the place for you! (more)Clare McKee
    Excellent. It was not a thrills and spills vacation, just a quiet retreat where you are looked after. And if that is what you need, this is a place for you. (more)Tina cook

    Memorable parts? The most memorable part was Carolynn and Peter's warm hospitality involving lovely food, generous amounts of good wine and cognac and lively conversation around the dinner table. Domino the dog made everyone feel loved. The road cycling is excellent due to the almost deserted roads and hilly terrain. The routes provided are easy to follow, varied and provide a good workout over the week. Tips? Be prepared to put on weight as the food and wine is abundant and hard... (more)Carol Gray
