Lovely hotel with comfortable rooms, great atmosphere and very friendly staff. We were in the building across from the mill house and the steps were steep and rather treacherous, which was the only downside. The hotel parking is in an adjoining cave and very convenient.
The restaurant had various fixed menus (a la degustation) and a la carte as well. The food was sublime and the service from the front of house was fantastic. The meals and wine were not cheap but were good value.

... Seville. It was the second time that I had been to Seville, as we had been there on the tour I did to Morocco. I walked along the riverfront & climbed Torre de Orta, an old tower by the river. I then went through the Alcazar & it’s gardens. The Alcazar is a beautiful building & the gardens are worth seeing too, although not as extensive as the ones at Alhambras in Granada. I went for a walking tour of Seville the next morning, which was very good. We ...
... because she clearly wanted to talk and it turned out she was British. I was rather cool and tried to ignore her because she looked and was acting somewhat oddly but as I stood up to return to my van she invited me back to her house for a cup of tea. I don't know why but I agreed. It turned out that she was on the camp site to use the laundry because she didn't have a washing machine, the reason she didn't have a washing machine was because her house had ...
... built to have no hills. It was perfect. It also stormed all night, so there was mud everywhere, but not on the new paved trail. It was yet another kindness on our host’s part to point us to this trail. It was like a walk in the park today, but I don’t think my companions liked it very much. I think the architect, wanted us to walk the 40km, but he knew that I wouldn’t do it. So, he lamented the fact that we had wasted a day with so little walking. He used ...
... we kept going for another 40min until we reached a bench where we stopped to eat. At this point, my guide said that we had another 13km to go before we reached our destination, but the architect’s guide said only 8km. Considering how long it took us to do the last portion, I think it was 13. For that last 13 I felt like I was on a forced march. We stopped very little; I was drenched in sweat, and my head had been killing me for hours. I really needed to take about an hour to ...
... The domes are all of equal size, 13 meters in diameter and are supported by pillars that are 6 meters on each side. The large domes give the space a very open feeling. There are also some lovely chandeliers that are apparently the same ones that hung in Notre Dame of Paris in honor of Napoleon III’s wedding. The altarpiece is a huge 17th century Baroque monstrosity, and I mean that in a good way. It is absolutely as over-decorated and ...
