Rooms at the Urso are decorated in a mixture of old and modern styles with brightly coloured walls and Persian rugs. Each is air conditioned and has a large bathroom with bathrobes and slippers.
Guests will be offered a welcome drink or a bottle of wine upon arrival. The Urso Villa’s breakfast consists of homemade jam and pastries, together with yogurt and freshly made cappuccino.
