Being very tall it was therefore fantastic to find country accommodation with a king bed and very spacious rooms and shower room and very tasteful decor. Extremely welcoming owners and staff very concerned about their clients well being. The breakfast outside with stunning morning views of the mountains was excellent. Highly recommended...
