A lovely house on a hill. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms were big and well equipped. Meals were served on a terrace looking up on a lush mountain. Breakfast was good with adequate selection.

We enjoyed the refreshing swimming pool. the perfect meal in the evening and the delicious breakfast . The next day the lady of the house gave us a tourguide in her wellmaintained garden ans explaned us everything about herbs and fruitplants. Know that to reach this place you need a car.

Eileen cares for her guests. We fell ill end she gave us medicines. We got the famaly room, even though we reserved a smaller room. The breakfast is extensive! Fruit, eggs, pancakes, cereal, bread, porridge and homemade jam. WiFi all the time. At 17:00, we asked for some diner (must be ordered before 12:00!) and she gladly and easily made...

This place is awesome. The staff makes you feel like a part of your family. I'd go again just for the breakfast! The lack of AC in the second bedroom, and short shower head were an inconvenience but not enough to deter someone from staying. Maybe that's just coming from a large Americans viewpoint... Great place!
