Up a hill at the end of the road this small hotel was the best stay we had in our three weeks in europe. The staff came out to meet us when we pulled in the parking lot, check-in was fast and our rooms, up one level from the lobby, had great views of the area from our balcony. They also had an underground parking area that was nice and secure.
Dinner was a nice surprise as the food & wine list was superior to anything we had while in europe. Of course the prices were also superior to any I'd seen on the planet.........starters around $30 and main course about $80. Toss in a $160 bottle of wine and dinner for two will run you $450!! We ate on the terrace and the service was great (thanks Elizabeth & friends).
Some advice about room choice. We and our friends had 112 & 113. They had great views but were located above and just to the right of the terrace. In europe folks are allowed to smoke in outside dining areas so we had the sick sweet smell of cigar smoke wafting up onto our balcony. Mixed with the cigarette smoke from others down below it forced us to close our windows and retreat back inside the rooms. This could be a major problem as the hotel has no A/C. It was very warm the day we arrived so you really needed the widows open.
Cigar smoke also put a damper on our dinner but the wind helped keep it way some of the time. So.........request a room away from the terrace area if possible unless of course you're one of those super cool people who smokes big cigars and want everyone to cough through dinner and smell just like you when they're done.
