We stayed in the more modest "chalet" which was quite tiny and not as glamorous as the rest of the resort. But for only 50 Euros, I'd say Eric hit it out of the park. I don't mind sleeping somewhere cheaply when the grounds and common areas are so thoughtfully done.
Not to mention loads of lemon trees and cute bikes. (This region is famous for Limoncello. Remember when I made a batch a few summers back?)
I liked the blue checkered tiles at the pool and the geraniums blooming in the sunshine absolutely everywhere made me anxious to get several pots going as soon as we get home. So cheerful and unpretentious, aren't they?
The lobby and lounge is devoted to Jackie. Not sure why they chose her as a "theme" exactly, but I think she would have approved the decor nonetheless.
Eric and I are at a strange point in our life of traveling where hostels don't really cut it anymore, we hate the anonymity of chain hotels, and we aren't quite up to a $200 dollar a night splurge either. (Especially when its a six week adventure!) It's wonderful that there are more and more budget friendly boutique hotels popping up to fill this gap. What is your favorite hotel experience?
