"What a lovely place to stay"
This is a beautifully decorated house with all mod cons situated in a regular Kerkennan street. Julie, who owns the house is a delight who helps her guests with taxis, travel plans and in anyway she can to ensure they have the best possible stay. She also has made sure we have lovely breakfasts of croissants, pastries or fresh bead and fresh brewed coffee every morning. Staying at Borj el Kella is like staying with a discreet but very good friend and we would both recommend a stay at chez Julie as it is known on the island.
