This is one of the most unusual and visually appealing hotels I've ever stayed in. Every inch of the property is designed with cubby holes and nooks, each tastefully decorated and meant to be used to sit and read, have a quiet conversation, or just plain relax.
Set in the middle of the nowhere, but backed up against two spectacular mountains, just getting there is part of the detox. Please note that at the time we went (June 2014), the bridge that leads to the property (5 minutes away) is under extensive repair and is closed. There is no sign directing where to go, and you literally wonder what you are supposed to do. Luckily other locals came by and drove down a dirt path alongside the bridge, and we followed bravely.
Other reviewers have commented about the lack of wi-fi, and I tend to agree that if you want to be wired all the time, this is probably not the best choice for you. This is a place to come and commune with nature, to take walks in the country, to read a good book, all the while delighting in the wide variety of artwork in house.
The food is plentiful and varied. The roast pig is to die for, and the Sardinian bread is just plain addictive.
The staff could not have been more cordial and attentive. They went out of their way to make sure you had a good stay.
My only other observation is that you should be aware that you are out in the country and primarily outdoors. There are plenty of flies and other insects around (none in the room), but that's what dining al fresco means, right?
Can't wait to come back, and this time with my wife!
