Apartment was well apppointed with everything you could need for a weeks self catering. It is advertised as having wifi but it took three requests before the required information was supplied to enable access to the internet. If this apartment is going to be advertised as available to English speaking areas then information should be available in the apartment in English. We had to ask a neighbour to translate the only information available. A lovely area with some very pretty towns to visit but it is a totally German speaking area with practically no English available. However the German tourists were very helpful and lovely to meet. We didn't have any problems apart from difficulty with eating out as we couldn't understand menus. Added to which we are vegetarian so had to be very careful when ordering. Having said all this I would have no hesitation in recommending both the area and the apartment. I would certainly come back if we returned to the area.
