We stayed one night and loved the peace, the beautiful old village and the food. Dinner was outside on the terrace, local dishes well cooked. Breakfast from a buffet selection.

Beautiful , peaceful and quaint. A real honeymoon village. There are a few hikes to do if you are adventurous or you can just chill in one of the interesting little pubs , enjoying a good meal and a bottle of wine.
