Beautiful setting and excellent service. We stayed here for four nights and felt reluctant to move forward on our journey!! Anja the manager,was enthusiastic, eager to please and with a gentle sense of humour. She was instrumental in effeciently helping to sort out the problem with rental car we ordered.
