It was so lovely staying with Diane, the house is just perfect and the surroundings are beautiful, we did some gorgeous walks and sat by the fireplace in the evening...
We loved the house! It is beautifully renovated and decorated and it is very comfortable. The toilet is on the first floor and the bedrooms are on the third floor, but that wasn't a problem for us. Also we did not miss the TV and there was always plenty of parking available around the corner. Diane was a very welcoming host, and she went out of her way to help us and make us feel comfortable. We can't wait to go back!
Das schön renovierte Häuschen erinnert ein bisschen an ein Museum, wer einen Hang für Antiquitäten hat, wird es ebenso bezaubernd finden. Für 2-3 Personen ist es vollkommen ausreichend. Wir fühlten uns durch die Vermieter sehr gut betreut. Im Kühlschrank standen erste Aufmerksamkeiten, die Vermieter informierten uns über Ausflugstipps in die Umgebung. In der Nähe eröffnete ein netter Imbiss, vor dem sich abends der Ort traf. Fazit: sehr empfehlenswert.
