Ottima soluzione a Praslin
Ottima posizione, a pochi minuti a piedi dalla bella spiaggia di Anse Volbert (Cote d'Or), a cui si accede tramite una scorciatoia che vi viene indicata appena arrivate, e con una comodissima fermata dell'autobus proprio davanti all'ingresso del giardino. Dana è un host davvero eccezionale, disponibile e pronta ad aiutarvi per qualsiasi cosa. Colazione non a buffet ma ricca ed abbondante. Assolutamente consigliato, se tornerò a Praslin soggiornerò sicuramente nuovamente a Villa Rafia

Less than average
We stayed in an old part of the guesthouse. The room itself was ok but the bathroom was in a very bad condition. Old dirty/ mouldy shower and tiles. Not nice smell. The water was cold or hot, no chance to get warm option. No TV in a room. Although WiFi worked well. To get to the beach you have to go through the resort next door but it's not far. Breakfast was fine although on the first day we had to ask for a breakfast for our child (3years old) as the table for set only for 2 people (we were 2+1). The lady who served didn't really want to give us the third breakfast and asked the other lady (owner?) who didn't look happy about it either. We paid for a room for 3 people and I did not appreciate that I had to ask for breakfast for our little one. I spoke about it with a lady who booked us in (can't remember her name but she was absolutely lovely) and on the following days our table was set correctly for 3 people.

Не соответствует ожиданиям
Вилла находится в 5 минутах от пляжа Анс Вольбер, проход на пляж через отель. Наша поездка на Пралин совпала с днем рожденья, заранее писала на виллу и просила о хорошем номере.... Но по факту разместили в самом убогим номере, без терапии как на фото, на заднем дворе, номер маленький, очень не хватает света вечером, вся мебель очень старая, дверь в туалет не только не закрывается, она просто открыта настежь, без ручек, т.е. когда вы находитесь внутри все звуки и запахи слышны у вас в комнате, это не то чтоб некомфортно- это ужас, чтобы сходить в туалет нужно просить чтобы другой человек вышел из номера. Вся техника Мега старая. Короче русским плохие номера, а французам самые лучшие. Завтраки одни и те же. Хозяйка гостепреимна. Не советую этот объект.

Nette Gastgeberin, Frühstück eintönig aber zumindest frisches Obst. Nur Barzahlung, keine Kreditkarte, da kamen leider sehr viele Spesen zum eigentlichen Preis hinzu. Gute Lage, nicht weit zum Strand und Geschäfte. Bug spray auch am Morgen beim Frühstück ratsam.

Das Frühstück war gut. Die Lage gut. Der Kontakt vor Beginn der Reise war schlecht. Wäre Dana (die gute Seele des Hauses) nicht gewesen wäre vor Ort einiges schief gegangen. Der Chef hat nur versprochen, sich aber nicht gekümmert.
