We provide you with full continental breakfasts, a lunchtime buffet/sandwich service, three delicious evening meals with wine and one gourmet lunchtime meal at a Michelin-recommended restaurant.  Unlimited wines, beers, snacks etc. are free on the house and available all day.

Throughout the whole week, guests are invited to make themselves at home and help themselves freely, and without cost, to the drinks and light food always available at the house. The fridge is yours!
