Shops and eateries aren't far away either. This house-turned-bungalow had four rooms; one in the ground floor, two in the first floor and another in the third. All rooms... More

We ran into this guest house by accident and were immediately convinced by the friendly, easy going, elderly owner, who also organizes trips on demand, and the great house. Best stay on our 3 week trip.
