This family-run old villa is usually booked in high season – but snag one of the 14 rooms and you’ll be a guest in someone’s mansion. The interior is meticulously arranged yet comfortably renovated, with antiques furnishing many rooms, which have air-con, ceiling fans and heating. Reserve No.4 and slumber in the bed Franz Josef slept in on a visit in 1875. Breakfast is served on the front terrace and there’s a lovely garden at the back. Note the rave reviews in the visitors’ book.
