    Besides a wonderful location with great rooms, the restaurant was five star in terms of food preparations and variety. Had mussels for lunch prepared with wine and butter. Seldom do I find restaurants that have any idea on cooking mussels. These were prepared to perfection.

    Hello, breakfast starts at six am and if you want to check in earlier I suggest you contact the hotel so they can personally see your date of arrival and reserved room to accommodate your needs. Kind regards, Alessandra
