Liked: Really great place. The owner is so friendly and very helpful. The facilities were brilliant. The kitchen was the best we've had in our 3 months of travelling. The free wifi was great too. Beds really comfortable and bathrooms great. They even had a lovely garden and a pet deer. Would definitely recommend!

Disliked: The location is slightly out of town but it's only a 15 minute walk. However the advert says 600m from the i-site. It's a bit further

Liked: A wonderful house just a Minute walkway far from the main street, with a big peaceful sunny garden (chicken and a baby deer included as well as tables to enjoy your breakfast outside). I enjoyed my stay 100 %! Very tidy, kitchen full of fancy stuff - everything a chef needs - instruments, pool, free wifi... and helpful advises for activities and all your questions from the receptionists.
