    Luisa room on third floor with separate bathroom, but still convenient. Added the package with the roses, champagne, candles, bath products, and chocolate covered strawberries, which was a nice touch. Quiet and romantic location.

    This is a beautiful place, remarkably quiet. Delicious breakfast and a nice wine and cheese hour to allow guests to socialize in the manner of their forbears...without phones or a giant TV. So hone your conversational skills, and enjoy the company of your fellow humans.More
