My husband and I have just returned to England after discovering Pension Tonci. From the moment we arrived we felt at home: Perina's charming driftwood art, fish-mosaic stone paths and beautifully designed garden seduced us immediately. These were matched by the warm and gracious welcome we received from both Perina and Thorkil. Every day we feasted on freshly-caught fish, home-made organic bread, vegetables and olive oil harvested from the garden, eggs from the hens and white wine from the Pension's vineyard. Not forgetting the best home-made limoncello liqueur you will ever taste! There are no roads, no cars, just the sun and the moon and the beautiful clear sea. Perina's family have lived on this island for generations, and her father Tonci still fishes for the guests. If you care about the environment and want space, tranquility and quiet, along with some great conversations over the dinner table, this is the place to be. If you want air conditioning and power showers, go elsewhere. Pension Tonci is a real, authentic place to enjoy. The reason I have only given 4 stars is because the mosquitoes ate the other star: a salutary reminder that we share the planet.
