Fantastic

5 of 5
Lovely property, good sized bedrooms, the fourth bedroom is off one of the others. Good big bathrooms and decent showers with lots of hot water. Kitchen a decent size with everything provided. We stayed for a week with four adults and bikes and went straight out on the bike path which is directly opposite the house every day. Very friendly host who brought us a cake & beer which was lovely! We rode to Luxembourg, and Aachen and it was lovely to come back to somewhere decent in the evening with plenty of room. Comfortable beds, linen provided, I've stayed in some really basic places, this was the opposite end of that! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone (we already have!) Thank you.
