Great house and wonderful service!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday.Helena was very nice and she tried to fulfill every wish. She even offered breakfast, washing service etc..The house is great, we spend the nights very cosy in front of the open fire.

The house is in the middle of the island, maybe a little colder and cloudier, but surrounded by great landscape and easy to come to every other spot on the island.Thank you for everything!!!
