We were brought back in time spending a night in one of the "caves". We had a breakfast in a room which we were told was an old church, (we understood it was from 12 century - not sure though if I am right). It...More
This place is unreal. You'll never experience anything lile this anywhere else. We spent our honeymoon and our 1st wedding anniversary here and could say enough good things. The private dinner in the deconsecrated church is a good place to start - simply life changing....More
