walkabouttoday (US) – Tripadvisor review

Lukas (US) – Tripadvisor review

David, the hotel manager, is very experienced, and it shows. The service is perfect, the ricissima food, especially breakfast is served on the terrace of the room. The location is very good too, near the village but very quiet. Highly recommended!

Everything about the stay was impeccable. The private bungalows are exquisite in their simplicity, and perfect in every way. They allow the stunning scenery to take center stage, and with sweeping floor to ceiling windows allow it to be experienced all day or night. The staff was incredible – very … Read More
