Our house is cozy, our client feels like home. Family and restored and well cared for. Our mascot who lives with us called prince (dog) and it's like family. Coexists well with our guests. There is a kitchen where the client can make your breakfast or small meals. There is no cooker. Is not allow to cook at the propery. If the customer need towel and sun umbrella to go to the beach we provide for free.
I like to travel and take photos for everything to remenber later and compose my memories. My hobby its running and walking with my dog Prince. In this job I like to meet lots and different people and differents countries.
Our neighbourhood normally its quiet, but in the weekend have a bit of funny for all familiy. Its in the centre of the restaurants, bars, shops and historic centre is just 5 minutes by walk. We have a new space near the entrance of the old town. In the post tourism information you and your familiy can visit the tower and take a beautifull photos of the city.
