It is immediately welcoming from the moment you step through the gate and into the secluded courtyard. Once inside the cottage you will know you have made the right choice. The owners of this property have ensured that anyone staying here will feel 'at home' with everything you could need for a relaxed and enjoyable stay. The pretty village fully deserves its reputation and no matter how many times you stroll along the narrow streets or down by the river there is always something new to discover. In fact, we love the cottage and area so much that we will be spending Christmas there this year.

The apartment had every comfort and all equipment you could wish for. It was very quiet, beautifully clean and well maintained. Would highly recommend it.
