Bed & Breakfast Shanti House

Named after the Hindi word for "peaceful", this small, charming hotel is run by a pair of fifty year-old hippies named Franco and Martina, and their cook Pippo. They serve excellent food and wine, strong coffee, and good laughts to a reggae soundtrack. Their sincerity is truly inspiring when they ask us "What is the sense of having something if you cannot share it with others?" Helping to run the Shanti House is a group of volunteers – Eartha, Jeneke, Shanty, Lauren, and Elliott – each with their own fascinating story.
