Great owners, great place ! The rooms are big and nice, the bathroom is super clean. Everything is cosy. The breakfast is quite diverse and the quality is very good. I would definitely come back if I had to stay longer. The road to get to the hotel is a bit hard though!

well appointed and clean small hotel, approx 800m above sea level, very long winding road up but well worth the stunning views. Staff are English speaking , polite and attentive, the restaurant is good offering ala carte and pizzeria , breakfast also was continental and ok. Small room but ok for a one night stop over.

Very friendly people, but if you can't sleep at night because your window is right above the hotel café, where people sit outside and talk (loudly) until well after midnight), and the room doesn't come with curtains to block out the street lights, then the whole experience is not very positive. If you do have to drive over a very...
