“Beautiful views in a tranquil setting”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2015

The views were simply breathtaking over the river. Many mornings and evenings spent on the private balcony just watching the birds and a few locals fishing. There was no one else, very peaceful. The river is safe to swim and can be accessed from private river beach. The grounds are large so many places to relax. Most days we had the place and pool to ourselves, even with about 8 other guests. Though high season might differ. You can hire out kayaks, rods, pedalos for the day. The owners speak fluent English and were so welcoming and friendly; you can eat with them at breakfast and dinner (15€ for 3 course) which was delicious or head out to Tabua. Not a picturesque town but the food was good. The town has 2 large supermarkets just ten minutes drive away. There are restaurants dotted all around all within 15 mins drive. No tourists apart from us (which was perfect!). The apartment was lovely, good size with view over the river. Kitchen only has a hob and not oven. There are 3 cats and a dog, all friendly but perhaps ask if you have small children with the dog. The only downside would be the road leading to the place, don't hire out a brand new Fiat500 as we did! (Not by choice). Extremely bumpy and steep! Good bit of driving needed to navigate the road but we made it. You do need to take your own rubbish out with you but there are plenty of bins dotted around so not much of a hassle. As a young couple seeking quiet and relaxation away from crowds this was the perfect destination.

Hi Kat, thank you very much for your review! It was a pleasure to host you.
