Reviewed 28 September 2018 via mobile

Had a very nice stay here. The location is beautiful and so peaceful. The room was as described, basic but clean and comfortable. Restaurant is expensive but fair priced considering where you are. Free WiFi. Recommended. I stayed one night but could have stayed two.
