we were staying here for 3 nights, it was pleasant and the family that owned it were so nice and welcoming to us, and gave us lots of tea! the room was spacious and the bed was comfy. we went in december and a little heater in the room would have been so nice. the room itself was clean and cosy but the bathroom could have done with a bit of work, cobwebs around the vent opening & the shower curtain was ready for the bin. after arriving by taxi, it seemed we were so far away, but there is a short cut that you can walk that more or less takes you straight into town. overall a nice stay. wifi did not reach the rooms & only cash payment, no cards,

Stayed here for a night. Owner was friendly but the room was extremely cold/damp and food has highly overpriced as well they don't even have menu. We were asked to pay and eat for what they planned to cook if we need dinner.

it was a such a wonderful place to get rid of your concrete based cities. If you want to feel how nature treat you just go there and listen to the bird singing. The architecture is fantastic and the cottage located area is too easy to lazy. Its 15 min walking distance to the town. They can add more value to the place by fullfilling needs such as Foods , drinks and etc. Totally satisfied , very reasonable price and staff is also very friendly but bit needs to be improved.
