    Violetta and her daughter Evelyn are wonderful hosts who made us feel at home straight away. The house is beautifully clean the bed very comfortable and the breakfast variety much appreciated. Only 20 minutes by bus to the city and railway station we can highly recommend this lovely host.
    We wish Violetta all the best.

    Marcia and her husband are absolutely fantastic people. We've had an instant click-on great relation and communication from the moment we opened the door. Good and interesting conversation, very adoptable and easy-going. Left the place clean and tidy. They spent most time out visiting and discovering the city, were open to our recommendations for places to visit. We wish you more adventurous travels.
    All the best!

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
