We stayed for three nights whilst on a walking holiday and were charmed by the style of the hotel, full of art and interesting nooks and most wonderfully whilst we were there scented by the huge jasmine bush in the Arcadian gardens. Our room was very comfortable and well appointed with a large flower filled terrace. Sadly we managed to... More

The two Victors were very welcoming and helpful - nothing was too much trouble and we were given a particularly warm welcome (nd cava!) as the first British guests booked through Inntravel. Victor Senior managed to arrange tickets for us to visit the Alhambra palaces later in the week for a time and date when they were already sold out... More

This was a fantastic boutique hotel run by a congenial father & son (Victor & Victor). Stayed two nights while hiking in the Sierra Nevada's of Spain. Hotel was furnished with wonderful paintings & works of art. Over the top flowers & potted plants. Pool was refreshing after hard days of hiking. Bought local jewelry too. Food was deliciously prepared... More

Had a great stay - from the moment you enter you know this is special, a place with real character , nothing corporate here. The staff were great, welcoming and helpful . Loved the colour in my bedroom , books to read , food was delicious and pool and garden a delight.

We arrived after a wonderful though demanding full day walk in the GR 142 and we thought: et in Arcadia ego! What a beauty and what a charm! This hotel is as exceptional as its surroundings! We loved the way it's decorated, the colours, the plants, the pictures, the books. Not to speak about the food in the restaurant and... More

From my standards I would have to categorize this quaint hotel as a boutique hotel. Little pieces of art work, a green room filled with plants and book and magazine organized at different corners for their guests. The only have a television downstairs in the living room which I feel is much better than having one in a room. They... More

We stayed for 2 nights and loved it! The style, decor and atmosphere make this hotel a very special place to stay in. Having 2 young daughters in a rustic hotel might not be easy but Victor (the owner) did everything to make it as comfortable as we could be. He even gave one of the girls a gorgeous teddy... More

This is one of the most beautiful places we have been to. The hotel is not a modern luxery hotel but a small rural hotel full of charm and athmosphere. The surroundings are green mountain hills and small white villages. It is like a wonderland. The host Victor is a very nice and helpful person who speaks very good English.... More

The hotel is in a quiet village with tremendous views and good walking / cycling, along mountain paths and roads. The staff were really friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. Rooms are spacious and clean.

I recently took a group for a painting holiday to this charming family run hotel and can't say anything else for it but praise! The bedrooms are spotless with lovely fresh cotton sheets and all kept tidy everyday by charming staff. The atmosphere of the hotel is of warmth and friendliness and the feeling that you're sharing the family's home.... More
