What exactly is a self-service or private retreat? A self-service retreat is designed by you! There is no on site hostess so the weekend is for you to enjoy, or your terms.

The area offers many restaurants to dine out and our fully furnished kitchen is perfect if you want to cook your own meals.
What do I need to bring? First of all, don't forget your pictures! Then of course, you will need to bring comfy clothes to relax in.
