I had the most relaxing experience with Claudia. I had a massage and facial and felt so relaxed, I think I floated home!! Was a lovely setting and a beautiful experience.

I have been to Alegria Beautyfarm on numerous occasions and I love it! I wouldn’t go anywhere else for a facial or massage. Claudia always greets me with a warm hug and if I’m lucky, some home baked treats. Highly recommend Alegria!

Had on Tuesday the most amazing facial. Claudia is an absolute expert in the field of facial skin care. I felt amazing and my skin is still glowing 2 days after. Will be back for another fix for sure. Thank you Claudia!
