Michelangelo

Re-live a bit of the history of Albion Manor by enjoying the very Victorian Wisteria Room that is favoured by those who enjoy baths: it has a beautiful claw-footed tub for soakers! Just lie there any enjoy the frescoed ceiling. See the photo below. And you will want to spend a lot of time on the covered sun deck.

Full canopy beds were popular at one time as a method of preventing 'things or thingies' from falling onto you at night from your thatched roof. One presumes that, as roofs got better, only half canopies were necessary. We can assure you that nothing will fall on you from the roof- we don't have a thatched one. This intricately carved half-canopy king-size bed is solid mahogany and features beautifully carved bird and grape motifs.

We're pretty proud of the bathroom. Fernando spent months painting the walls and the frescoed ceiling: an angel sprinkles flower petals down onto whomever is in the bathtub while doves pull ribbons that hold up the chandelier.

Michelangelo has a private, covered deck where you can sit in the evening and enjoy a glass of wine. Look for the sayings from Oscar Wilde that Fernando has painted on the colourful detail
