Breakfast is served from sunrise till brunch-time on the roof-terrace which benefits from a panoramic view over the old town to the sea. In the evening you can enjoy a massage to relax at sunset, and if you’re still in the mood you can also visit the private jacuzzi in the patio before retiring to bed… The 3 lounges in the basement & the 3 terraces offer internet access with WIFI FOR FREE (including all rooms!) and are a pleasant place to chat with other guests:-) The hostess of the Riad is Nicole Pavlin – a Swiss who is fluent in English, German, French and Italian."
