Location & hosts, Joao & Carmen, brilliant; very small, don't expect hotel facilities (lounge, swimming pool etc.) but what you do get is excellent; breakfast are photogenic; no evening meals here, but we wanted to try a few of the numerous nearby little foody places anyway (& the hosts guided us to suitable ones to try, which were all excellent). If you think it's too expensive, then maybe it simply isn't what you're looking for . . but we'd recommend staying here for the experience.
