We had the best time at Toni's! It was truly a highlight of our trip this far. His place is beautiful and the views are stunning. His food is amazing- don't miss having him make a wonderful dinner!! One of the best meals we had on our trip. He is a wonderful host! Highly recommended- thanks Toni!!!
Hemos estado muy a gusto. El sitio es precioso. La casa es bonita y cómoda, se respira serenidad y buen gusto.
Wonderful views, excellent food and interesting fireside conversations. Thanks Toni for everything!!
Absolutely wonderful stay, not only is Toni's home gorgeous and the surrounding countryside stunning but his incredible attention to detail, super cooking and great fireside conversation meant we not only had fun but have made a special new friend! Thankyou with all my heart!
Un fin de semana perfecto! La casa es inmejorable, igual que la ubicación. Aunque si hay algo a destacar es el anfitrión. Toni nos hizo sentir cómodos desde el primer momento, gran cocinero y anfitrión, nos recomendó rutas geniales y sitios donde comer. Hemos disfrutado de su compañía y las charlas pero siempre nos ha dado nuestro espacio.
Volveremos seguro! Y desde luego lo recomendamos!
Wow! What a great experience me and my family lived last weekend at Toni’s house. I just felt like I was at my own home, surrounded by breathtaking views and spectacular natural environment.
The place was incredible, really clean and very comfortable and I have never felt cold inside the house.
Toni demonstrate us why he is a truly superhost, respecting privacy and always ready to make sure that nothing was missing. He’s also very friendly and charming.
Thank you so much Toni for those great days!
About the Host, Toni
Hi, my name is Toni and I'm from Barcelona. I like hiking and outdoor sports...running mostly every day, also traveling when I can! I lived in NYC. Did the "Tour du Mont Blanc", trekking in the Jungfrau Region (Swiss Alps), the "Santiago Way" all the Vasque coast... My last long distance trip was to Japan and I used airbnb to stay in Shibuya (Tokyo). I love cooking mediterranean food, rices (nice paellas) and pasta. All kind of juicy BBQ's as well: vegetables, fish or meat!
