This accommodation is more than a B&B and less than a hotel. It is more of a lodge. It was like a country home. There is a large lounge downstairs and we had an equally large bedroom on the first floor. Both of these rooms were full of antiques and so many of them gave the place a sort of musty feeling.. The stairs were horrible, concrete and winding and we were pleased to have to go no higher than the first floor. A downside to the room was the very dim lighting making it difficult to read in bed. In spite of the size of the room there was no wardrobe and clothes had to be hung on a shelf in the bathroom. The drawers were in a rickety old chest and had to be tugged out instead of slid.
There were many good things however. Although the owners were away Viginia who lives there and the only staff member we saw was magnificent and attended to our every need.. The bedroom was part of a suite with a separate bathroom with bath-tub and a separate lavatory. Free WiFi and ordinary coat hangars were appreciated.
This was the only place where we had breakfast on this holiday and it was an elegantly served continental breakfast which included fruit and various croissants. It was a pleasure not to have to keep running to a buffet.
Be warned they do not take credit cards so you need sufficient euros to pay.
