How we keep it green & Sustainable
Our olive trees have since it was planted 5 years ago never had any chemical treatment / fertiliser or anything like that. These trees are treated and fertilised with natural products like Epson salt, which is very good as an insecticide as well. The olive oil we use at De Denne are cold pressed olive oil from our own trees.
We have a veggie garden and most of the veggies this season came from that garden. Also no chemicals or fertiliser only plain used filter coffee, tea bags, chicken egg shells and banana peels all mixed together and used just like that in our garden… works like a dream.
You can also use it in your garden as well. Our amenities in our rooms are manufactured from Rooibos, and is very soft to be used use on any skin type. Even when cleaning our laundry (linen and towels) we use a mixture of washing powder, baking soda and coarse salt. And as softener we use vinegar. It leaves your linen and towels soft and fresh.

What our guests say
What a fantastic place. So peaceful, and our one-night stay was too short. The astronomer was brilliant, so pleased we booked to see the night sky. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Thank you all!

Davina & Yoachim, Belguim
Thank you for hosting us at your beautiful guesthouse. The food was amazing and the sights were mesmerising. Such a relaxed place and our stay of 2 days was not enough time!
Jack, Kim, Hugo, and Bram Gros-Herman, Holland
A truly amazing place with breathtaking scenery and astonishing views. Rooms are excellent & well equipped. Our only regret is that our hectic itinerary only allowed for a single overnight stay, otherwise we would have loved to spend some more relaxing time.
