Wir haben uns in der großzügigen Wohnung mit dem tollen Sonnendeck sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Vermieterin und ihre Familie waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und empfingen uns mit gefülltem Kühlschrank, Obst und Wein.Das etwas kleine Doppelbett soll demnächst ausgetauscht werden.Das Bad mit Dusche ist ziemlich eng, aber es gibt dazu noch ein Bad mit Badewanne.
