2nd time we have stayed here and was just as good if not better than the first time. The B&B is spotlessly clean and really nicely presented and Andre and Apinya are perfect hosts, being very attentive and generous at breakfast and are really keen to make sure your stay is just perfect, which it was. We are planning to... More

The room was not big but clean and the bed was more than good.The owners take really good care of you. They ask if you want a real Englisch breakfast. Andre prepares this as it should be prepared. We are from Holland and we felt really welcome in his beautiful B&B. Again thank you.
