Reminds me of the series of videos on Eat. Travel. Learn. And Nokia Shorts competition also has a beautiful split screen Love […]

  We’ve stayed here 3 summers in a row, a cosy 21 room 3* hotel run by chef Flora Mikula. She’s at the helm of the kitchen downstairs and the rooms are divided into themes of gardening, Bohemian and nature. We go with the Garden theme every year – there’s always cherry tomatoes in full […]
