The restoration of the set of buildings has been carried out with the uttermost respect for the original architectural features. It included a manor surrounded by a group of smaller farmhouses where the products of the land, such as oil, grapes, and wheat were collected and processed. Original building materials have been cleverly restored and reused thus combining the typical atmosphere of a traditional agricultural settlement with state-of-the-art facilities suited to the needs of the times. The original buildings date back to 1860 but the hotel now comprises a total of 12 guest rooms spread across 2 storeys. The establishment is fully air-conditioned and guests are welcomed into a lobby. There is a restaurant and conference facilities on site, and room and laundry services are available for a fee. Guests arriving by car can leave their vehicles in the nearby car park/garage (fees may apply).
