Making reservations in advance got us through the main gate to the village with special transport from the parking area to the main hotel. Traveling seniors will really appreciate this door to door service. Rooms were very nice and the views, of course, spectacular.

I'm not sure if you received the answer ... answering is a bit complex on this site it seems!!! ... just in case I will write again. Sorry but I dont recall exactly the time of breakfast served - but I am sure I would have recalled if it was other than the usual 7-10 or 8 - 10 that most accommodations offer. What I do recall is the breakfast was great. You may have received this 3 times! Make sure you eat something with black truffles while in the area.
