I'm in love! The views, the surroundings, the attention to detail, the zen atmosphere, the food, the hosts, the yoga class, the air, the river, the overall experience was a gift. Oriana and Frank are smooth, laid back and yet committed to providing you with a wonderful stay. We asked about dinner in the area and they proposed they provide a meal for us - yum!!! A cornucopia of homemade delights. The breakfast, included with the price of the room, was another hit. They seem to be where they are supposed to be, and you are welcomed into that beat with them with ease. In my experience, "hippy" places can be grungy and brick-a brack. This place has that "hippy" feel, but is clean and thoughtfully done in all the right places. The rooms are clean and decorated with care. We did not swim in the pool because of the climate but it was clean and inviting, and we did enjoy a nice, star filled soak in the hot tub. Lovely! Thanks Frank and Oriana!
