Great place to base in Olião.

A friend and I had a fabulous time there. The location and faculty were fantastic and they dealt with our challenge with car patiently as there was no easy parking on the street. They were very quick to respond to our questions and helped us have a great experience in Olião.

All top shelf. Cleanliness was outstanding. My only complaint was a missing stopper in the wash hand basin in the bathroom.
