We stayed here for 4 nights earlier this month and we should have stayed for eight. From the moment we arrived, we were looked after by some of the best hotel staff we have ever encountered. From reception to restaurant to cleaning staff they could not have been more helpful and engaging. The hotel itself is a truly wonderful site... More

From the moment we arrived, we were treated as honored guests. The suite was fantastic, clean with a large terrace. The breakfast on the roof terrace was excellent, truly a full brunch every day. Location is perfect, we will return. Many thanks to the property owner Andrea, congratulations on creating a wonderful property.

We had three nights here. We decided to spend a bit more and took a junior suite - this gave us a lounge area however because of its location (more like a large hallway between bathroom, front door and bedroom) we really only used it as an extra area to spread our gear out in, and a lovely large terrace...
