Externally, this is a very attractive, natural stone house with flowers around the outside. I have been around some years, and never have I come across such a clean guest house! We were warmly welcomed by the landlady, Teresa, and given a parking permit to unload the car. Couldn't find parking near to the house later on but plenty of... More

Room was perfect, quiet, good size, clean. Bathroom was as described... More

We loved it and still talk about it more than any other place we've stayed at. The rooms were clean and roomy and breakfast was great. Location was great... More
