Super experience. Nice place. We had an overnight stay in the luxury tent, but unfortunately we had no hot water. The owner offered to compensate with a voucher, but we don't know if we will come again. Friendly reception. During the festive evening, we were finally a bit overstimulated by the tinkling on some kind of metal instrument. Was well intended to entertain us, but the reduction to some quiet music under the starry sky at the campfire would have been more desirable for us. It was a wonderful end to our trip.
