Everything was very clean, comfortable and homely with everything we needed for our stay. For us, the location was perfect, quiet and semi-rural, and a great base for exploring all aspects of the island. The welcome pack was a lovely suprise after a long journey. Thank you!

Very clean and it was like staying in a posh hotel. Cristina had a meal prepared for us, roast chicken, which was very welcome as we had an evening flight. And to our surpise someone came in to change the bedding and towels midweek and left us a lovely supper! Thank you Cristina for your kindness. We are already planning our trip for next year!
