The welcome in this lovely situated homestay is overwhelming! Ruby does everything to feel you at home and more. It's hard not to gain weight because of the excellent meals presented at breakfast, lunch and dinner. The couple also arranges several very nice activities around their location, of which the mountain drive is definately a top choice!
