The Old Countryhouse
Imagine a hostel within 15 - 20 minutes walking distance (5mins by bus) to the city centre - a hostel where you can escape the hustle and bustle from the moment you enter the property through the garden gate... Take a walk along the garden path to a charming villa with polished wooden floors and hand-made native timber furniture. Both our villas have been completely restored and are equipped to please the travellers needs.
