Arriving there was not easy at all, driving in icy, tremendously slippery roads...But the incredible beauty of the sorroundings and the solid, heartwarming comfort and kindness of the hotel, made it all worth the while. It's decades of welcoming cleanliness, silence and discrete elegance in a homely way. We loved it, in our tiny loft room with a view... And what a view: the church, just like a picture, and (at left) the sea, that huge and stony beach. It was comfy, silent and perfectly set for review in any moment, exactly the place you'd like to go once and again forever. We were so exhausted that we didn't awake when they called us for the northern lights. A big pity, because seeing them there must be beyond imagination... But note that they have -everynight in winter- a list of the northern-light-lovers to call in case they appear. Please don't miss them and don't miss this hotel, at least for one night.
