Very comfortable stay with excellent hosts who gave us good advice. Lovely breakfast. Advisable to book ahead at the local restaurant as very popular. The pizza cafe is a very good alternative with friendly staff and very reasonable prices.

Noted, as was your booking.com review. Thank you. Our style is not modern or chic and whilst I remain the owner it will never be. I love warm, comfort which offers a feeling of home and family and almost all my guests over 7 years...More
