This 4th floor attic suite is a beautiful bright space! I could sit all day at the front windows and watch the world cycle and cruise by in the canal. We spent 4 weeks here and felt right at home. The owner was helpful at every turn (by email). We were close to groceries, restaurants, historic sights... We had high speed internet to keep in touch. The kitchen with stove, microwave, dishwasher and fridge was great for cooking simple meals. The bedroom has a comfortable big bed, big closet and a washer/dryer (inside part of the closet). The heating system was very effective and easily adjusted to comfort. Yes, there are plenty of stairs which we are comfortable with; that helps make it a fabulous perch.
