Guestbook comments from the owner
What can we say that has not not being said in previous reviews??
The hospitality and help that has been offered to us by Helena, has been delightful.
The walking has been great both on the organized walks in the West of the Island(see Helena for details), and the ones we have navigated ourselves . We choose to do the guided walkes in the West, as public transport is less frequent.
The bus trip we booked with Helena to the West of the Island, was really good and very well organized, with the opportunity to have some little walks so that we weren´t sitting all day on the mini bus.. The guide was incredible knowledgeable about the Island, including the history, flora and fauna and was also a bit of a comedian...
It has been great to be able to return each evening to such a comfortable , cozy and spacious apartment...
We can also enclose what others have already said about the Restaurant at the end of the street, by the bus stop. Good food, friendly serviceand very reasonable priced...
We used public transport all of the timeand it has been increadible easy and staff were imuch helpful.
We look forward to coming back...
