WAKE UP AND SMELL THE VINES
Almost Scandi in design, the three vineyard lodges are beautifully appointed and perfectly positioned with a view over the vines and setting sun. Each lodge comes with its own huge Jacuzzi bath (what better way to enjoy a glass of sparkling), as well as barrel saunas outside for cooler evenings.
There are complimentary mountain bikes to explore and best of all, the extra-large king-size beds sound super cosy to curl up in with a coffee the next morning. Oh, and did we mention they are dog friendly too.
