Not quite what we were expecting
welcoming hostess. Good views. Good breakfast. Room a bit run down. The photos of this B&B show the rooms in a much better condition than they really are.

8/10 Very good

Nice view, lovely pool and clean and appealing looking rooms. The hostess was kind but very energetic and eager to check up on you often. We felt a bit stressed by this and would have wished to be left on our selves. The breakfast was really nice and the location is good. Also a huge plus is that you get a parking spot at the hotel.
