Pros: Their wine was good and they were very friendly. The vineyard was beautiful.
Cons: The room was very hot. No fan or AC. We had to keep the front door and windows open just to get some air in, no screens. Nothing close by. The market in town had very little to offer. This was basically a bed and bathroom. At least the sink water was hot enough to make instant coffee with our own cups. They supply no extra. We left after the first night even though we paid for 2. $140 was way too much for this place. Very disappointed.
