Well equipped for self catering and very secure. A good base to use for your day trips. Gerda very pleasant to deal with and gave us very handy tips to travel in the area.

We enjoyed our temporary but cosy home away from home. The facility offered all the basic necessities. The garden was charming. The peaceful area is a plus point, especially when you need it to get two toddlers down for sleep. We felt right at home since we arrived.
