Great food prepared daily using only the freshest local ingredients, combined with fine wines from neighbouring cellars will ensure that your stay at Mountain Shadows will be an unforgettable experience.

Mountain Shadows is more than a guesthouse - it is a celebration of life, family, friends, food and wine. Come and visit us in the shadow of the mountain…and rejuvenate your soul.
