We stayed in the garden cottage for 3 nights. The kitchen is impractical and has a bar fridge for 4 guests? From the parking area to the cottage is about 100m to carry your luggage .... we had 2 x over eighty's in our group. The beds needs replacement as well as the pillows (smelly).
The garden is special and the vineyards a lovely area to relax and go for a walk.
Okay. 3 out of 5

This is such a beautiful and well run town, with an abundance of wine and good food! Would highly recommend this for any visitors seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. Or just want a romantic weekend away. It is on the pricey side, so be prepared to pay a bit for a meal and drinks. Otherwise have fun!
