A gorgeous property with a beautiful view and totally secluded - what a find. Everything was great in the apartment but there were oddly no wine glasses or paper towels. Also not sure why we paid 60 Euros for a cleaning fee yet had to take out our own garbage. But that shouldn't detract from a wonderful stay overall.
Good accomodation, beautifull environment
Bon rapport qualité/prix
My wife and I along with our two daughters thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return without a second thought. Our apatment with two bedrooms, two baths and kitchen fit our needs prfectly. An ideal place from which to explore the country side. Dinners were varied and of high quality. Our waitperson, Olga, was extremely friendly and conscientious. The chef provide us with a special treat on our last night. We enjoyed sharing dinning with local residents as well. All staff members were professional and extremely helpful.
