You will be amazed by the breathtaking views over the valley and the ocean. Our spacious garden and lawn of 2, 5 acres allows you to load up your batteries on various terraces and quiet spots in our natural surroundings. The water from the tap, in the pool and Jacuzzi is pure and filtered mineral water from our own well. We are an Eco lodge and provide you with water and electricity in an ecological way.
