The weather was perfect and we enjoyed the outdoor pool and later the indoor pool. Due to the location of the pool and the mountain, the outdoor pool loses sunlight relatively... More

Each card had a photo of our bikes, all different. It made us feel somewhat special. The setting of the hotel, amid excellent biking roads is ideal for exploring the area.... More

An old TB sanatorium on the edge of the mountains high above the nearest town. Great drive in the surrounding countryside and a few walks closer to the hotel. Nice rooms and both indoor and outdoor swimming pools as well as a gym. Buffet dinners only ordinary.
