The rustic and charming guest house features one airy open kitchen and eight rooms including three suites and five double rooms.

Entry-level double room start at €148, and the suite will cost €188 a night. The prices include breakfast and taxes.

Hotel guests will be offered an exclusive chance to try the seasonal menu featuring Mediterranean cuisine at the hotel’s open kitchen. The dishes are prepared with fresh ingredients sourced from the region such as seafood, herbs and local olive oil.

A three-coure menu starts at €48 an an elaborate five-course will set you back at €88.

Holidaymakers and guests will also have the chance to immerse themselves in a four-hour long guided winery and vineyard tour of Terroir al Limit, a boutique winery founded by chef-turned-winemaker Dominik Huber.
