AREAS WHERE rent a house in Havana

Super famille havana vieja
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour à la Havane grâce à l'accueil de Marleni et Raul. Leur casa particular Alameda Habana est très pratique car bien placé dans la vieille Havane (5 minutes à pied de la plaza vieja). La chambre était cosy, agréable et propre. ( boissons fraîches au frigo si besoin, pratique quand on se réveil la nuit). La salle de bain est privée et dans la chambre. Elle est petite mais très propre et il y a de la pression dans le pommeau ( très agréable quand on a beaucoup de cheveux à laver)et ce qui peut être rare dans d'autres casa. Nous avons également très bien petit déjeuner. Marleni vous demande l'heure à laquelle vous souhaitez le prendre et tout est préparé à votre convenance ( thé ou café, jus d'ananas ou autre, pain toasté et bon beurre(rare aussi dans le pays),œufs, jambon, fromage et fruits frais) . Marleni adore cuisiner et ça se sent. Avoir pu discuter avec eux à vraiment fait la différence. Ils sont gentils et ne sont pas avares de bons conseils ou de bonnes adresses. A conseiller!
