We stayed in this lovely B&B for 2 nights in July. Maria, the landlady, is very helpfull and very friendly. Rooms are tidy and big, only airco is missing, which is a bit hard in summer time.

We stayed at B&B Principe Calaf for three nights during July 2013 and were very pleased with our choice of this specific B&B. We got a superior room (in the main floor - named Turandot) which was beautifully decorated and personalized with a Turandot opera theme. The room was spotless clean and very spacious and even had a small balcony...

We stayed in this B & B late April. It's a really nice refurbished old house, large rooms, remodeled bathrooms, comfortable beds. The owners and staff are pleasant. The breakfast is plentiful with the only fresh strawberries we were served in 5 weeks of travel. The house is located in a good part of town. Walking to the old town...
