A very welcoming place and Peter's grandmother had been a perfect guest even offering us a nice salad from her garden. The house is impeccable and it's a good feeling to be in that village meeting nice people on the way. Highly recommended. Francine and Suzanne

First - important note for next guests - ignore AirBnB location, and go to GPS coordinates that will Peter provise. Place is clean and comfortable, and quit too. There is everything inside what we could need, but ... even better were our hosts: Peter's grandma Milka and grandpa Emil. Wonderful people, had a great time with them, and they helped us too. We'll certainly come again next year! And not to forget - they make their own fantastic honey (bees are just a 50 meters above the house), wine and rakija. And it's amazing to watch at the stars over night.
