A great location for visiting the national park area. Very quiet and the bathrooms were terrific - lovely hot showers, just what’s needed after a long drive. A big thank you to the staff at the guest house who very kindly got up early to make us breakfast before we headed off at 7:30 for a days hiking

Excellent séjour à Stekkatun
Excellent séjour à Stekkatun ! Localisation : La maison d’hôtes est située près des centres d’intérêts, le restaurant JonRiki est situé à 10 minutes en voiture. Conforte : chambre petite mais cosy, on se sent comme chez soi. Vu sur la montagne et les plaines. La salle de bain est très propre et fonctionnelle. Accueil : l’hôte est disponible pour répondre à tous nos questions et n’hésite pas à nous conseiller des lieux d’intérêts.
