Pros: The apartments are amazing, quiet, great views, excellent value for ~50 Euro!
Cons: The hotel is 1-2 km from town, we did find a path the last day to avoid the road, but it is meant for those with a car. Some laundry soap would be nice. Also the pool was still being filled the day we arrived (1 June).
Pros: The serenity of the environment and the cleanliness of the hotel were first class. We got automatically upgraded one category since most rooms were not occupied.
Cons: The remote key to open the gate at night did not work so we had to climb over the gate to operate the key from the inside. That was OK for us but I can imagine less mobile people to have an issue (and there was no number to call to solve the issue at that time of night).
Pros: Excellent friendly, helpful staff. Beautiful setting with superb sunset views of distant hills, great swimming pool for cooling off after hiking, quiet tranquil little village. Apartments were basic but rustic with a lot of charm, nicely decorated. Restaurant was very good, hearty meals at a good price. Very keen to go back nex year
Pros: Excellent location. Very friendly and helpful manager. Good dinner menu, well cooked.
Cons: The rooms were a little dark and uninviting
