          We loved the large house and open living areas. The fireplace was great on the cold evenings. The view fro the balcony when we had the barbeque was awesome and relaxing.Establishment's response:Thank you for your great review! You were an absolute pleasure to host and we look forward to hosting you again in future

          Pavetta is stunning. While there are a few maintenance issues that need attention, none of them affected our stay. The rooms were impeccable and the house a pleasure to live in for 4 days. The children enjoyed the rowing boat and games room as well. The only criticism is a separate outside entrance for the downstairs rooms.

          We had wonderful Easter holidays. Beautiful surroundings with a lot to do. Walking in the forest, fishing, relaxing and enjoying the view. My son said he wants to move here. Staff was very friendly. We want to come again. Thank You.

          We had a lovely stay , found the room configuration a bit awkward, as the main room had two single beds made up, problem was my kids are both over 20 , and the rooms below were snapped up by the other family, so my kids ended up in the lounge.  Beautiful setting, conveniently situated. We were a group ranging in age from 20-58
