We already know that we have amazing rooms, breathtaking views, sublime decor, meals to eat and beg for more.
We have all of this, but we want more.

We want your holidays to be unforgettable in all aspects. For you to have unique experiences that will forever be in your memory.

We wanted to share a little of our connection to the region with our guests.

With this in mind, we developed a range of experiences (we prefer to call them experiences because the word “activities” doesn’t do them justice; they are encounters that we hope will be both enriching and memorable), from culinary experiences that make use of regional products to picnics in secret locations or experiences more related to the river.

And here is our challenge to each and every one of our guests: tell us what your tailor-made experience would include and we will do our utmost to meet your expectations.

Let yourself go.
