Sabine is a really good host, we had great discussions about everything, she is really a wonderful woman, full of spirit and talent. The camp has a really good way of thinking, in harmony with nature and soul. It is perfect to relax and have a break from the stressful city life. The beach is only at 20 mins walk from the camp, really peaceful. You have another one a bit more far away (40 min), really beautiful. The food was excellent: freash fish, fruits and vegetables, good coffee, awesome! We really appreciated our stay! Thanks again Sabine!
This place surpases all my dreams and expectations - sea, nature, people, architecture. A very rich and inspiring experience.
