Hatten unsere beiden Kinder und sogar unseren großen Hund mit. Woanders hatten wir eher Probleme wegen der Größe vom Hund aber da konnten wir Sie ohne wenn und aber mitnehmen. Einfach Top! Auch gibt es in der Nähe einen kleinen Park mit Hundetüten. In der Stadt wurden wir auch sehr Hundefreundlich begrüßt. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und gaben uns noch Tips wo man gut essen oder Ausflüge starten kann. Sie kümmern sich schnell wenn Fragen offen sind. Das Preisleistungsverhältnis war auch super. Wir würden sie jederzeit weiter empfehlen. Ganz lieben Dank an die Vermieter für den schönen Aufhalten bei Euch. :-)

Jiri was very helpful and showed us where to park for free. We were very pleased with everything except the double bed was very hard and uncomfortable for us but the other 3 in our party were happy with sleeping arrangements.
