From the moment Elena opened the heavy ancient wood entrance door and
the iron gate to welcome us with a glass of sherry and olives, we were lost in times past, you are at peace as soon as you step into the lovely courtyard, surrounded by whitewashed walls, stone pillars and tasteful art all around.
Our room was the old pigeon coup
"El Palomar" on the top floor, entering off the roof top terrace, just stunning, with lovely kept stone floor, wooden beam ceiling, tasteful artwork and a special poem on the wall just for us, and the bathroom's understated elegance not competing with the past.
We enjoyed some lovely sun sets on the terrace with a glass of wine, watching the birds actually flying below you and an unbelievable view.
Elena and her staff were very attentive and helpful, we so enjoyed breakfast in the courtyard with attention given to little details, every evening candles would light your way through the courtyard, library, walking up the rounded old stairwell to your room.
We felt privileged and lucky to have found this lovely hotel, we now consider our treasure and hope some day to return - built in 1729 and with love and pride taken care off.
Thank you Elena
Karl and Manuela
