This is really an amazing experience! You are literally in the middle of nature, with nothing around you, you can take a bath looking at the starts and fall asleep with the Milky Way saying good night! We recommend it with all our heart!

A one off experience, although the weather wasn't kind to us, the skies did finally clear at 3am to give us a wonderful sky show. And the sunrise in the morning was fabulous. Lovely hosts, beautiful place, thank you x
