                                      I was made to feel at home from the moment that I arrived. I was given perfect directions and maps for the places that I wanted to go to. The room was clean and comfortable and I was given a very nice breakfast.

                                      An attractive apartment for two in the old town

                                      4 of 5
                                      The property was as described and earlier reviews were helpful. It is a charming property well maintained and clean. The apartment is small but fine for two people. The sofa in the living room tended to sag a little with two (not very heavy) people on it and a replacement would be an improvement. The stone spiral staircase is a challenge with luggage and could do with some repairs on the lower section where there is some deterioration. The owner Gaelle was very helpful and provided good information about the apartment and the area. We found some excellent restaurants a short walk away. The area is excellent for cycling and a good guide is available from the local tourist office. The nearby Van Gogh Foundation museum was very good particularly as it has recently been able to obtain on loan some well known Van Gogh paintings from Amsterdam and elsewhere. I would definitely recommend this apartment providing you are happy to tackle the staircase.
