Beautiful , peaceful and quaint. A real honeymoon village. There are a few hikes to do if you are adventurous or you can just chill in one of the interesting little pubs , enjoying a good meal and a bottle of wine.

Have to rate as 5 stars just for being so unique. Small houses and a few shops plus a hotel within impressive castle walls. You can imagine that it hasn't changed that much for hundreds of years. The hotel appears to be built on what...More

There is a hotel with a bar. I suppose it is possible to leave anything you would require at the hotel.
