Accommodation and school in the same building.
Located in the middle of nothing. The surrounding natural area is interesting but you need to meet local people to visit, and watch out for the profiteers.

The classroom on the deck that's due to the hillside, resided mid height among the trees with may visiting birds and butterflies was outstanding. The teacher was very good in observing what we knew and did not know, and adapting the lessons accordingly. Very impressive.
The evening events with the local community were great.
