          Everything stated about this guesthouse is true, you can enjoy short bread and all the other refreshments promised. Breakfast is served at the magnificent eco pool and again this was real 5 star treatment.

          A wonderful place with an outstanding rose garden (beautiful even in autumn), a beautiful natural pool, very friendly and helpful host. Situated in a peaceful little historical town with museum, nice houses and good restaurants.
