This is a small, charming place to stay. The staff does everything they can to make your visit and your outings as good as possible. Breakfast was a treat, and their recommended driver was very good. Even though it was active with comings and goings, I never felt overlooked. The local restaurant recommendations were also excellent, and the neighborhood was walkable. A good value.
