I stayed here in April with my husband and my sister and her partner. We had a room on the first floor, the others had the room on the ground floor which was bigger. The rooms are decorated simply and comfortably and with a lot of style.
There are weird things to consider - like the lack of bathroom doors which is a bit odd - but the sister who run the place were such friendly, warm characters. If you want to be really quiet, then this may not suit as noise tends to echo off all the hard surfaces and sometimes they play quite loud music which would be to everyone's taste. But if you are open to some interesting conversations (with the help of a laptop for the translations) and dancing round the place with the managers and their kids, it's a really friendly happy place to be.
Breakfast is great and they'll serve it when you want it.
We hired a guide to get us there - once you've done the walk once it's easy but you'll struggle to find it on your own. The location is great and there are super restaurants nearby.
The old building is beautiful and kept in excellent condition. With just 4 or 5 rooms it's quite feasible you could book the whole place.
My one annoyance was that my sister's partner was allowed to smoke in the courtyard. Nice for her, not so good for smoke haters like me. Watch out for the tiny tortoise who lives in the big planter in the corner of the courtyard.
