This was the most fantastic B & B you could ever imagine. Anita and Alan were great hosts and we had a lovely room with brilliant views. Anita cooked us great breakfasts and we chatted over breakfast with an American couple who were staying there too. They have a lovely friendly dog and we were just welcomed into their home like family. The house is tucked away and so there were no sounds at night to disturb us and we slept like babies. Anita has olive trees and has them pressed locally. Lovely olive oil. Anita was a wonderful hostess and guided us to some lovely local restaurants and places to visit. Overall this is a must stay if you are in the area.
