What a unique and fantastic location! Alison was kind and helpful, and it was great to meet all the other lovely folk who were staying. My highlight was sleeping under the stars in a cosy bed, complete with mosquito net! Our 12k hike on the mountains was an amazing experience, followed by a very refreshing dip in the cool water tank! I would definitely recommend this great quirky place

Gorgeous place and just what we were after! Very peaceful and you can really get away from it all. Wonderful walking on the doorstep and nothing very strenuous. Our hosts were great and there was no fuss - we've just done our own thing and been very relaxed. The accommodation is open plan and shared which for us is not an issue. Wonderful colours and artwork inside and a gorgeous veranda with stunning valley views outside. We would definitely come back and wish we were staying longer!

The house is located in a really nice place, isolated in the mountains. Perfect to enjoy the calm of the valley, and to hike in the barranco. You will meet kind travelers and backpackers ecofriendly.
