My wife and I stayed here for three nights last June and had a wonderful time! I can only echo what has already been written here already: we had a warm welcome, our room, as with the rest of the house, was comfortable and interesting; Patrick and Brian are thoughtful hosts- knowledgeable, but not condescending, and interested in your experiences of the island. With the sad demise of our favourite restaurant, A Tesa, in Lozari, we were glad to have found such a talented chef as Patrick who takes such a pride in his work! It was also a pleasure to chat with them and the other guests around the dinner table.
One thing to be aware of, is that Patrick has a night off on Sundays, and outside of the high season, you might have a bit of a journey to find a restaurant; we made do with three bottles of beer and a packet of cheese biscuits from the car, thereby ensuring a healthy appetite at breakfast.
Can't wait to go back!
