The cafe is very reasonably priced and the food is good quality. It's a nice place to browse, the clothes shop inside the old buildings with the original machines. Very attractive place and adds something special to the village

All pretty good, it seems... And we even attracted a local cat, for we do not have one of our own. And so pleased, Zofia C, that you felt welcomed... That is one of our absolute priorities.
