Our dreams are cradled by a refreshing sleep. Our hunger for roaming is nurtured by the attentive gestures, hospitality and welcome we receive in the places we stay in for a certain period, whether a mere bed & breakfast or a luxury hotel. To lay our head on the pillow and fall into the arms of Morpheus, certain that all out needs are being well taken care of.
In 1551 an elephant found lodgings at an Inn: renamed the Elephant soon after.

Since 1773 the it has been owned by the same family and managed with care and dedication right up to the present generation.
