Try saying their name after visiting a few wineries: Rarumpelpunzeldornaschenwittchen. A self-declared “enchanted B&B with a terrible name”, it won’t surprise you to know that there is a slightly Germanic theme here. Two charming wooden cottages inspired by the Grimm fairytales are situated in a beautiful garden – one called Rapunzel and the other Rumpelstilzchen. Close to many wineries and the Pedernales River, this adorable accommodation has loft bedrooms, kitchenettes and living areas – and breakfast is served in-room.
