This guesthouse is absolutely wonderful. If you are looking for peace and quiet, for a friendly and familiar atmosphere, then you will love it here. There are 10 or 12 rooms and they are lovely and clean. They have double beds (2 matrasses and seperate blankets). The garden is lovely with a lot of flowers and a nice pool with sunbeds. Breakfast is made fresh for you every morning and served at your table. The owner Maria will try to fulfill your every wish. They also have a fabulous bungalow (standing free of the guesthouse, but attatched to the garden) with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a big living and a kitchen, which can be rented weekwise. We were there with 2 teenage children, who also loved the place and the pool (and the little dog!). You can park your car directly in front of the guesthouse. It was a very welcome change to the fancy hotels with masses of tourists!
Pls note: the shower in room nr 3 has very little waterpressure. The one in the childrens room worked fine.
