If self-catering is more to your liking, you can stay in old Tuscan workers' cottage 'Casa Fiore' with room for six adults and one child. Or choose our self-catering cottage for 8, 'Bank Cottage', in the beautiful Cotswolds, England.

Bibury is a stone’s throw away, one of the most famous Cotswolds villages. The view from the cottage and the elevated garden is stunning. It’s a haven for nature lovers, with lots of space and walking routes, and wildlife.

"Thank you for everything. It's been blissful as newly wed couple to relax and do very little other than sit and read, stretch and eat/drink! It's a wonderful place and has hopefully been the start of an inspiration to live slowly and change from England's pace. We shall return soon and hope to see different shades at a different time. Thanks so much again!"

As you can see we don't offer a booking system. Why? Because we prefer contact and communication to anonymity and impersonality. We'd much prefer it if you give us a call (+31620401970) or drop us a line. We can tell you so much more, for instance about which rooms are available at the preferred time of your stay and which would be most suitable for you, than a booking system ever can. We respond as swiftly as we can. Please let us know which retreat you are inquiring about (B&B Casa Capanni, Casa Fiore, the Garden Suite or Bank Cottage), and if you're inquiring about B&B Casa Capanni, please state which room(s) you'd be interested in.
