    Clean, well appointed B&B 400 meter walk from the center of town. Frank, the owner couldn't have been more accommodating and pleasant. Comfortable bed in a quiet upstairs room. Excellent, tasty breakfast! Try the bacon and eggs.

    It is probably about a 15- to 20-minute walk to the center of town, where many shops and restaurants are. If you walk slowly, it might take longer than that.
