It was an extraordinary experience. The views are spectacular. The village is half an hour drive distance of other civilization. The sandy dirt road to the... More

a small village completely renovated to be a hotel! nice houses (in traditional style, thick walls, small windows) and a friendly hostes. food in the restaurant is mostly local, sheep next to the fireplace, fresh bread, salt from the village below, home made desserts, etc.

Negative points: -Woodworms in the rooms making terrible noise that our friends couldn't sleep. -Too expensive, both the restaurant, (value for money) and the room (80euros/night), they charge 4.5 euros for two slices of bread with butter and honey OR butter and...

We informed the... More

The decor was beautiful, the design and furnishings were well done and very attractive. The infinity swimming... More
