  • We arrived full of enthusiasm in town on a Saturday morning of February and I must say that, oddly, there were very few people around and-even more annoying-it was even hard to find a simple localetto for lunch. Maybe even a sandwich? Nothing. Everything is closed, except for the most expensive. This prevented us from staying longer visit. The village is nothing short of enchanting and amazing sea ... you could exploit more all this even in low season. Maybe we came on the wrong day?
