Many groups of tourists in circuit stay in these hotels, very comfortable and beautiful. Those who travel by car can also be comfortable.

The hotels that I recommend neither invite me nor pay me to be on this list. I always choose my accommodations according to my criteria, I think it is the most correct way to be able to talk freely about the places and not to advertise for the fact that they pay you or invite you to sleep.
