One you get inside you start to think about the people who have lived here for a while. This is really embarrasing. The rooms are very nice. The view from the windows is fascinating. Do not miss this place when you are around.

We spent an afternoon here, looking at the Mansion and also the surrounding stone houses. We had a great lunch up the hill under the trees with a small waterfall, and toured the mosque as well. This little village is a hidden gem!
