Reconnect Nature and Culture

The hotel sits on the shoreline, partly over the water. Eating breakfast while looking out over the water toward the mainland, listening to the seabirds, is unique !! The owner is super nice and helpful to establish local contacts.

Great little town with very friendly people. The hotel is 100year old and right on the water. Lots of character and charm.
