    Beautifully designed cabin with beds and a fireplace. We also have a camping area where you can set up your own tent or park a van, if you like. We also have a fully equipped kitchen that you may use when you'd like and we also tend to cook for everyone with either a gas stove or over a fire or in a clay oven. We will also cover the price of gas, water, and there are solar lights and a dry toilet.
