About Janet Armstrong Sitar

I have dual nationality British/Croatian and have been in business all my life. I enjoy country life and fresh air and spend as much of my free time as possible working in my garden. We have fruit trees and a vegetable plot which our guests are welcome to share with us (even join in a bit with the gardening if you like!)

Janet Armstrong Sitar purchased this house in 2004

Città e posti fantastici. La città merita.

Scomoda e obsoleta molto improvvisata tra l'altro piena di insetti (cimici e chiocciole) ovunque anche nei letti. Negativa. I proprietari molto cordiali.

Owner's Response: Hello Domenico, Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. Guest feedback is very important to us to know how we can improve. I am sorry if the unexpected arrival of ladybirds and another unharmful insect afffected your stay. If we had been informed about this during your stay we would have no doubt been able to put this right - our guest comfort and satisfaction is paramount. It was a pleasure to have you stay at the accommodation with your wife and dog. You are very good guests and left the place clean and in good condition. I hope the beautiful mountain view from the property, tranquility, fresh air and the nice weather compensated somewhat for your dissapointment and that you will return again to Croatia.
