Cosy, relaxing and private

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Posada de las Rosellas for 5 nights and had a wonderful stay. The accommodation was well prepared, clean and comfortable. Everything we needed was provided (towels, linen etc) as well as staples in the kitchen. There was even bird seed and fish food to feed the animals. The property was very private and felt like we were in the middle of a rain forest. We would recommend.
