The hotel is made up of separate rooms spread around the village with breakfast taken in a small cafenio on the town square. We had room no/ 1 which was absolutely charming. It had a view over both the square and the sea, was dark and cool and decorated with an eclectic mix of antiques. The bathroom was modern, clean but only large enough for one person at a time. However, our favourite part was the balcony that we shared with a sparrow who brought crickets and moths back to disassemble and eat at our feet.
Across from the balcony, the full 6ft width of the main street, was the picturesque3 story bell tower. It literally lulled us into a false sense of security until 7.30am on Sunday morning when we were shot out of the bed by the noise of the bells.
The only problem is that the car needs to be left on the approach road which even in June was pretty full.So unload in the turning loop and then park.
