“We stayed just one night to Dariana Guesthouse – 12 guests and everything was perfect: the planning with host before and during our stay , the food, the confort (…) We tried the zip-line, there is also a ping-pong table, a beautiful forrest in the back. We appreciate the fact that we could remain in the restaurant long after dinner time. Outside is a lovely terrace which during warm season I think is the perfect place to be.”
