The reviews here say it all really.
This is a place to escape the blazing heat of the southern European summer or the chill of the northern winter. Ideal for walkers rather than families with small kids. A very beautiful part of the world that would reward repeated visits - the sort of region that you would grow to love. James & Aasta clearly love it and share their knowledge and enthusiasm. James is a mine of infallible information about walks, restaurants, beaches, sights, local history etc etc. You will quickly feel familiar with the place.
The hospitality from James, Aasta and Lucca is fantastic & the warm, unpretentious atmosphere is extremely relaxing and pleasant. It's a perfect balance between simplicity and comfort.
