from local histories, stories to daily needs and practicalities - this lovely owner couple celia and fausto really looked after me and they really love their job! it was low season so they 'upgraded' me in a smaller dorm room with a great little balcony. everything is super clean and new. the living area is amazing - i really felt at home cooking dinner in the open kitchen, having the tv on, relaxing on the couch, chatting with celia then going to bed in a comfy bed. i didn't want to leave!
