It's on the first floor,with lift, of a well maintained building. The garage is a plus. The apartment is bright, comfortable and very well stocked with everything for a family. We enjoyed our stay and found the owner efficient and very helpful to deal with. We were met at the railway station and given a lift back on a final day. We recommend this apartment highly.
