I found the place very difficult to find. The climb up the mountain would have been
a chore for Sir Edmond Hillery. My GPS kept saying "I'm lost Too" Very poor signage
on the roads up to the destination. A sign is needed at the fountain pointing to their
Road! The facility looked very quaint when we finally arrived. I was displeased with
the remoteness of location and wanted to cancel immediately upon arrival. It was
very rustic, isolated and not worth the money. We stayed 4 nights because they
would not allow us to leave without charging full price for our reservation. Their
on sight restaurant was expensive and very small portions. It didn't taste
like there was any meat in the meatballs. French Hote Quisine pricing, French
Nuval Portions, and Highway Road Stop Taste.
Our room was not up to a reasonable standard. The toilet was broken. The
bathroom sink was added as an after thought; it was directally in front of the
toilet and one had to have acrobatic ability to slide on to the toilet. Hence the
broken tiolet seat from a previous client. They quoted 15 euros for our laundry
but charged 30. Our room also had old second hand furniture and worn linens.
Another annoyance was their insistance of us running a tab
like a Deluxe hotel. We have stayed at other Agritorismo's that make this
place look really poor. We stayed in Sept. 2013
