      Beautiful and peaceful setting at a fair price. House clean with TV and could watch world cup football.Only suggestions:1. Bedding inadequate for winter so please upgrade duvets2. Advertised as 2 bedrooms. Not true. A curtain divides the single beds from the double bed but essentially the same area.

      The shower was not cleaned (cleaned my own shower). tbe bin in bathroom was not cleared. so we were very doubtful the bedding was cleaned. The welcome by some guy that was stoned was less than pleasant.... one very strong positive there is! view is amazing but at a cost of a very long dust road. dont come with a sadan. Also not used to not having tiwels provided. and last ting the website makes it sound like there are two rooms. but actually one loft that devides with a curtain. floors creak so you can hear every move. Would i come back? no but some that enjoy rustuc rustic might. certainly...
