“A pearl of a find...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

A good base to explore the region.
High enough to beat the heat,run by a nice family,reasonable, good food, in a calm,quite setting, surrounded by pure beauty.
Saw three roe deer from my window...made me hungry and went and had a good meal.
Go for half board,it is well worth it.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

A lovely quiet place in an alpine clearing, with views of the mountains and forest. Super walks, both gentle and energetic, with lots of wild flowers and butterflies. We liked the herd of cows which appeared some days. Just a few other houses nearby, and a bar within walking distance if you fancy a change. Hotelier is an enthusiastic Italian chef and his very welcoming English wife. The food sometimes includes interesting little seasonal extras like the first few yellow mushrooms found locally. We had very tasty fried eggs for breakfast. Half board was good value. Ideal for a painting, photography or walking holiday.

Room Tip: Our bathroom had a hip bath, so we couldn't shower, but it wasn't a big problem.
