Still fairly new, this family-run business is charming and cheerful. You can feel it's genuine when Sofia tells you to "make yourself at home." The downstairs rooms can be a bit noisy, and the WiFi can be weak, except at reception, but the courtyard is a lovely place to chill out after a hard day's touring and there's plenty of wine on hand. They can arrange a driver and guide for you if want a day trip. It's not easy to find, but tell a taxi driver to go to Sameba, the cathedral up the road and you'll see the sign on one of the side streets (this is useful after a night out too!).
I don't want everyone to expect this kind of treatment, but I will say there was one extraordinary act of generosity from the owners that I think will stay with me for life. Highly recommended.
