There are a few negatives that others appear to have identified too but these should not put anyone off, because the positives are really very good.
1. It's hard to find even with an electronic navigator and you can only park in a small narrow, steep street a little way away.
2. It's a little way out of town with no amenities close by
3. It is not suitable for those with walking difficulties.
4.The room we stayed in could have done with a fridge.
5.The water in the shower was cold all the time, so refreshing but frustrating.
That said it is beautiful, inside and out and peaceful too. It has great hosts, Franco & Betty who speak a little English and are so helpful, pointing out beaches and local highlights as well as an excellent fish restaurant 1K away (not walkable). They leave a small tray of breakfast food and drinks and the place is spotless. We really enjoyed our two nights there and as stated the 'negatives' are for noting but not necessarily to stop anyone else booking. We stayed in the main house - not the garden rooms that others refer too, but these looked really good too.
