“A house with its very own soul -”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2010

A house with its very own soul - and like every good soul having many different aspects. Beauty, warmth, harmony, kindness and hospitality. All this is offered to the people privileged to be here. Thank you for a really nice stay and I hope that the house will always be filled with good vibes.
