    We had a wonderful time at Jana’s and Mateo’s place. Hidden in a beautiful and quiet valley, the old farmhouse with its nice Terrace, Its huge garden and the small pool are like a little paradise where you can spend some lazy and relaxed days. Every night there is the possibility to have dinner with the other guests and we strongly recommend to do so, because Jana is a fabulous cook! Dinner is served best with Matteo’s home made gin tonic... Jana and Matteo can give great recommendations on what to do in the surroundings and have even bicycles for free which you can use to go to the coast for example. Dear Matteo and Jana, we really hope to come back soon and we are sorry that it took us so long to write this review... Thank you for everything!

    It has been noticed: Organic or Local Food, Recovery & reuse of rainwater.

    My dear Lena, first we wish you fabolous 2019. Very, very thank you for a such great review and we hope to host you again, soon. We are glad that you enjoyed and have still so nice memories. Kind regards, Jana & co.
