“Pretty hotel in a fascinating hill town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

The Villa is built into the hillside and is a really delightful building. The ground floor consists of a series of adjoining rooms; a lounge with a wooden fire, a small dining area with old wooden tables, and a bar area. Plenty of antique furniture and very atmospheric. The walls are covered with quirky paintings by the same artist. Little or no English is spoken.

Our room was a little small, lots of wood and had a mezzanine area with 2 single beds. Clean and cosy. We could sit on a small balcony which had a great view to the main village church and down the valley.

We ate in both nights, eating informally in a homely parlour with simple and tasty food. No menu. The main restuarant wsn't open when we were there. (The village has a couple of small bars in the older hill town and we spotted some other eating places in the lower town.)

The hill town is a gem; a real labyrinth of alleys. Well worth getting lost as you climb to the top, to the churches and the old castle. It's not self-consciously pretty, but utterly authentic.
