Beautiful Location

4 of 5
Enjoyed our stay. House has everything needed. Only slight downside was having an additional 60euros cleaning cost on top of accommodation costs.

Great apartment, even greater hostess!

5 of 5
Brilliant location, nice and quiet, very spacious, unbeatable value for money. The menagerie of animals living on the premises made the situation even more idyllic. Helene was adorable, amazingly helpful in any way possible, and made our disappointingly short stay very, very enjoyable. Would highly recommend and will most definitely be returning in the future.
