The views are delightful but sadly the sun only reaches the balcony in the morning. Annie has left many items in her home that you are free to use and some of her lovely paintings grace the walls. Although there are no restaurants nearby the peace and quiet is well worth it.

On arrival we were warmly welcomed and everything was neat and clean. The cottage is decorated with taste and detail. The surroundings are beautiful, we made many beautiful trips. We only found it a bit cold in the evenings with only a wood stove (September). Furthermore, the house is highly recommended. A place to go back.
