Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

If you're a big coffee drinker like me then consider bringing some Nespresso capsules with you. There were three provided in the room on arrival but then you need to purchase any more for the rest of the holiday (had hoped there would be a couple provided each day). There are plenty in the kitchen area for you to purchase but they are €1 each. Also snacks/soft drinks etc are available to purchase but again quite pricey.

All the food provided was absolutely out of this world though!

[In The Saddle note - coffee is included at meal times and there is a Nespresso machine in the dining room.]
