Our favourite rooms
Pick by house – rooms are split across different buildings in the village. The White House is number 154, next to the Orthodox church, and it has a little garden. Of its three rooms, we like the upstairs double set in the roof: it has plenty of exposed wooden beams, with a glass wall overlooking the garden and a snug bed piled high with blankets. If you’re seeking privacy, bed down in the old summer kitchen. The Yellow House's two suites both have private verandas and access to the garden. The Red House’s master bedroom has an antique cabinet painted with flowers, and a ensuite bathroom with historic gravitas: the year 1783 is carved into the beams. This house is suited to two couples or a family sharing.
Bathrooms are stocked with L’Occitane soap and nothing else, so definitely come armed with an arsenal of toiletries. The nights are cold, so remember warm layers.
Pets can come too, for €10 a day.
The hotel can’t provide cots or extra beds, but babysitting can be arranged with 24 hours’ notice (€20 an hour).
The food here has a clear conscience (organic, grown onsite or locally sourced), soaps are chemical-free, planet-friendly paints adorn bathrooms, and everything that can be is recycled. The inhabitants of Copsa Mare village have been heavily involved in the renovation and running of Copsamare Guesthouses.
