My family of two adults and two young children stayed for about 5 weeks during July and August 2017 and had the most wonderful time. The apartment is clean, neat and well stocked with all the essentials. We truly felt at home for the duration of our stay with only need of groceries from the market within short walking distance. Also, the beach, train station and bus station are very nearby, which was very convenient. Barbara and Pascal were excellent hosts. They were there for any need that arose and always friendly and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this place and hope to be able to stay again in the future!
