Thanks somersets, for your review. We did not notice the problems you caused - you were simply fun to be with and we enjoyed your stay too! Looking forward to the next time!

The hotel only has 14 rooms and is 5 minute walk from Torre Station. Hotel does a good Breakfast and Evening meal at extra cost. June to Sept has a outdoor pool that isn’t heated. Run by a friendly couple.
