Staying at De Denne was really nice. It was comfortable and the staff was very friendly and went out of their way to give us early breakfast and a late check-out due to the cycle race my husband was doing.

We all loved the luxury and service provided by De Denne. The tour was interesting, the setting was beautiful. The owner personally met and guided us to the place when we got lost at night.
