The Old Countryhouse Review

This old country house is actually three colorful, restored villas with polished wooden floors and handmade, native-wood furniture. You can whip up breakfast in one of three large, cheery communal kitchens. The dorm rooms have four to eight beds apiece. Colors are bright, there's lots of natural light and wood trim. It's a 15-minute walk from town but you can take the bus (routes 21 and 83); shops are close by.
