We booked a chalet here because we were travelling with 2 more people and thought it would be nice if we could all stay together and use the kitchen to have breakfast in the morning. I must say the place is lovely if you're planning on staying for at least a week but if like us you're only staying for a couple of days it's def not worth it! For a start it's far from the city, at least an hour, as you have to get a bus (709 or 070) and also the metro (eur fermi). From the bus stop ( Colombo ) which btw is in a motorway! You have a short walk to the site, although there isn't a pavement so we, literally, had to walk along side the motorway, with no protection and cars coming really fast. It's incredibly dangerous, mainly at night. Getting to the site, you can find a pizzeria, with very cheap prices (6 to 8 euros) and they also serve breakfast buffet ( 6.50 euros). They also have a small shop, where you can find all the basics, some are reasonably priced others are quite pricey. Be prepared to walk quite a bit to your chalet and carry your own luggage. Our chalet was 10 mins away, which was very inconvenient as we were quite tired from walking all day. In the chalet I was expecting to find, at least, the basics but no! There wasnt any shower gel or soap, neither washing up liquid or a sponge to wash the dishes... We found it very inconvenient as we had to buy all that stuff for only 3 days!
Anyway, staff was friendly and helpful, food was good and site was provided with lots of facilities.
