Just back from a week at Altura and previous comments about needing a car, helpful staff, steep steps to rooms are all valid. The beach walk is only for the fit, the path was virtually washed away in a rainstorm last week so it is a difficult decent, but this is the quick way into town where you can find...

The rooms are basic. I can cope with that if I had a decent bed! The mattress was very thin and every time you turned over you got a spring in your side. The 'restaurant' was nothing of the sort. At breakfast the menu for lunch and dinner was on your table. It was a set menu of pasta for...

Really excellent hotel from all point of view: confortable and nicely furnished room, clean, delicious food (fish every day), nice beach (La Sciumara) only 5 minutes away (on foot), helpful and kind personell. Only disadvantages: the hotel is not in town, therefore a car is necessary; no internet connection available.

Upon arriving at the reception office, Francesca, the gracious manager, was summoned. She welcomed us warmly and showed us to our room, which was done in simple but charming Mediterranean-style white and blue furnishings. (My request for a patio had been fulfilled.) Each room has its own entrance, so the place feels more like a villa than a hotel. Francesca...
