Beautiful reserve. Flora and fauna to die for. Wonderful scenery. Well worth a visit
It is an amazing place ! I would recommend it for anyone. When you arrive you can order from the wide range of delicious dishes which base on the local fresh ingredients (fish, vegetables, etc). After ordering you can go for a walk around the beautiful estate which contains many historical elements of the place. The walk ends on top of a hill where you will be bown away of the breath taking view. After the walk we returned to our lovely restaurant and had an amazing dish of fish. The staff if very warmly welcoming, family like atmosphere, perfect for children. If you are looking to experience a decent day, here is the place to spend it.
