But Sonja (the owner/host) went above and beyond to... More

We stayed for 4 nights at Santamana in April. The B&B is excellent and Sonia made us both feel very welcome. She is a mine of information about what to do and where to go. The accommodation is first class. Very spacious room with comfortable beds. Breakfast very substantial. Short walk to the town centre. Can't fault it!
