Jua House

Top choice bed and breakfast in Shela
Image by Booking.com

This five-storey house rises above the sleepy, donkey-filled alleyways of Shela. Apart from the warm welcome and plenty of advice from owner Thomas and his staff, there's a fantastic rooftop terrace with all-encompassing views, chill-out spaces and seven tastefully decorated, spotless rooms. The rooftop suite with private terrace is a worthy splurge.
