Behind a large slightly untended garden with a "moderne" design fountain lies Hotel Fontana. I traveled in Europe in the 60s and 70s and stayed in a lot of hotels like this. The lobby and large airy salon could be right out of the 1930s- furniture and chandeliers included. The rooms too are out of the 30s and the bathrooms perhaps the 70s. I found all of this charming because it was all spotlessly clean, the windows were large and the location quiet.It is family run and well maintained.The owner is very helpful and the dogs and cat friendly. I heard the rooster but did not see him. This place is not for everyone but I found it charming and a very good value.
