New staff member and again full speed ahead.

On the 1st of October we welcomed the first real warm days, young owls and lots of other young birds and all flowers in bloom.

The first guests , who were looking for blooming nature and good food and wine, arrived and all seem to be happy with all improvements made by us over the winter and spring period.
We even got an opportunity as a young and dynamic student from the university asked to join our management team for an internship and after some talks with the dean of the university all was agreed and we now also have a learning program for students in the hospitality business in place.

We asked Edwinah to write some lines as a welcome and introduction to herself, which we print hereby.

reviews and wonderful guests.
