The symmetry of Castor is almost absolute. The two bedrooms are pretty much identical (except for the bedside lamps) and revolve around the central kitchen.

There’s also the bonus of no squabbling over who gets which room – they’re as good as each other.

Host


This home is managed by Meike Silja

This home is managed directly by a business. A member of their staff will be your point of contact before and during your stay. Before getting involved in hosting, Meike worked in the marketing team for a large corporation. In the end, though, she couldn’t resist the lure of travelling, and helping others to travel. She therefore takes his duties as a host very seriously, and the care that she puts into the whole experience is obvious in every detail.

This home is a Plum Guide Award winner.
