I cannot begin to express how much I loved staying at this hotel. Of course, like all places, there are little foibles that are different from home - the strangled-sounding rooster next door! - but the service, welcome by Rafael and ambience were so beyond anywhere else I have ever stayed that I cannot recommend it highly enough. My only fear in doing so is that they will be forever full and I shan't be able to get a reservation when I certainly go back.
I visited for 2 nights in early August, staying in a single room next door to the double of my parents. The view, a 12th Century convent and church across a green valley, was gorgeous, as were the communal spaces. The weather was perfect, which allowed us to eat breakfast on the terrace. Being somewhat scatter-brained (and so totally at home!) I left behind my umbrella, first aid kit and my passport wallet containing my house keys and passport upon check-out. The staff, particularly Rafael, made sure that it was kept safe, even offering to drive it to me!, and I was able to collect everything a few days later. Upon our return to retrieve my things perfect cups of coffee just the way we like them were waiting.
