we stayed as part of Contours Walking tours; our bags were transferred ahead while we walked there. Downside: We hit unseasonably hot July weather - in high 80's and 90's - and no B & Bs or guesthouses have a/c. Not a deficiency but something to definitely be aware of if you go in the summer.
Now we arrived to find a note on the door for us that the owners had to go out for a minor family obligation and left us the phone for their daughter. We left her a phone message and went into town, walked around for a few hours and returned by 5. She was very nice, place was beautiful, good location, nice view, quiet, well situated. I have to take exception with whoever reated this place terrible - the owners were helpful, polite, available, and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed the stay and it was one of the nicest experiences of a lot of nice experiences on our 2 week holiday.
