We only stopped for dinner and brunch and the food was amazing, the owner was really hospitable and couldn't do more for us. He makes all the food from scratch at the front of the restaurant. I definitely recommend eating there, the flavours are perfect!!!!

He has to be one of the most humble kind man I have ever met; he sorted us out with rooms straight away and offered us any advice we may have wanted. Cyril will... More

“Up to you what you need. I don't know if all the rooms have a/c, so I guess I would suggest getting a room with a/c. If you can't climb steep steps, I would also recommend staying in rooms 1,2, or 3 (not 4).”
