Ilina is a very friendly, funny and inspiring person and a great host. She made sure we felt at home at her beautiful place, explained in detail how to get to the various climbing spots, gave lots of tips what else to do and see and even cooked dinner and breakfast with us. We wish we could have stayed longer!
