    Place is very secure and quite comfortable. We slept peacefully as if we were at home. The breakfast had lot of healthy foodstuff to chose from. Well prepared and served at requested time, in a professional manner. The house was very conveniently located to suit our needs. We really enjoyed our short stay.

    Nothing really to write about. We always left early in the morning and came back late evening. Had very peaceful night rests.
