                              Only thing maybe needed would be air-conditioning but other than that, if you looking for a tranquil environment, Amohelo is perfect! I loved the privacy!!!!

                              We loved staying here. The chalet was clean and tidy and well looked after, very nice! We went in winter, and our only problem was that the unit was very cold, and the heaters in the bathrooms and bedrooms made no impact, not sure if it's poor heaters or the chalet is not designed to retain heat. Otherwise we loved our stay, and would certainly consider visiting again if in the area. Lovely!

                              This accommodation was situated in a great location. Great atmosphere. The house was beautiful inside and out. The room was styled with modern decor and lovely bedding. It was quite warm and cozy. The room was spacious and had a great view. The place offers lots of activitys but we just took nice walks. The hosts and staff are both friendly and helpful. Id like to go back for a longer time, but its a great peaceful place.
