    京都五山送り火の日に泊まりました。 お部屋も2階なのにプライベートの縁側があり、お風呂もヒノキでゆったり庭を見ながら入れます。 2食付きプランでしたが夕食はとても美しくペアリングでおすすめされたワインも最高でした。 夕食後は雨の晴れ間にちょうど五山の送り火を見ることができました。 朝食もとても美味しく、京都産の3つもついているコンフィチュールはお持ち帰りできて、帰宅後も楽しめました! また是非宿泊したいと思います。

    主人と2人で泊まりした。 いろいろ時間がギリギリになってしまい、迷惑をおかけ致しましたが、嫌な顔をひとつせずにご対応いただきました。 何もかもが非日常な空間で、素敵な時間を過ごすことができました。 京都に来た際はまた利用したいです。 小さいお子さん連れの方もいらっしゃり、部屋でのんびりする京都を楽しめるところだと感じました。 ありがとうございました。
