La Piedre is a fantastic room with its own private terrace with beautiful views and a really spacious bathroom.Dominic Atterton
Probably the best place to enjoy a coffee tour - make sure to try and fit it in if you are only there for one night. Small enough for you to walk around, you can really see each part of the process, and then enjoy an extensive coffee tasting at the end!Sonia Bungaroo
