All information gathered first-hand, since 1995



The village doesn't seem very attractive for visiting, though. The buildings are tight against the roads passing through, and there are no little streets or "old village" or even any fountains to speak of. Even sitting on the end of this wooded ridge, the view isn't very good from the village, and the village itself can't be seen from a distance.

The location, however, is beautiful, with the forests all around the village.
