Wonderful experience in a unique location. Too bad that the wooden floor is a bit noisy (the people next to my room got up at 6 a.m.). I know there is nothing to do about that, and it wil absolutely not prevent me to come back.

Unglaublich schöne Lage, ideal um ein paar schöne Tage zu verbringen. Die Doppelzimmer sind einfach (vor allem die Matratzen könnten besser sein), aber ausreichend. Sehr nettes, hilfsbereites Personal. Das angrenzende Dorf ist wirklich wunderschön und man kann gemütlich und preiswert essen. Das Frühstück ist ebenfalls einfach und gut. Am besten Schlafsack mitnehmen. Selbstversorgung in der Küche im Innenhof ist ebenfalls möglich. Empfehlenswert.
