We spent a delightful night under the full moon with only the sounds of birds and insects. This is a delightful, rough, peaceful, beautiful campsite. The hosts are very gracious and hospitable. They know exactly what is needed to make camping comfortable and fun. We made good use of the ample wood supply in the fire pit and donkey.Thanks for sharing your farm.
