Pinooo and Carmel !! Thank you so much! We were recieved at night because our train came in late (close to midight) and Pino had the biggest smile on his face! He even gave us each a glass of wine and chips. Every single afternoon he would ask us how everything was, we would sit with him and talk about our homeland (Puerto Rico).
Our rooms were cleaned everday and, if you wanted, towels could be changed daily, if not they were changed every two days.
An coffee machine and small biscuit like treats were in our room. We would use them as a light breakfast in the morning.
Our room had double doors that opened to a beautiful terrace, where you could lay back and read a book or enjoy the breeze while taking a nap.
On our last day we were supposed to leave on a 7pm train and Pino and Carmel encouraged us to come back in the early afternoon so we could chill on the terrace before leaving (which we gladly did!).
It was a beautiful experience.
A plus: The train station is practically around the corner, and you can walk to everything else in the center. We never took the public bus inside the center. It's much more fun to just get lost and only pull your map out when you want to go back home.
Opinion: It would be really cool if rooms were equipped with a big water bottle and that some breakfast would be included as well. Some kind pf croissant or cheeses. But that would be just a plus to the wonderful stay. We really have no regrets.
This was my sister's second stay and my first and hopefully not my last!
Hope to see you guys again soon!
