Spacious room near the kitchen where you can play games at the table. Small living room where the television with satellite receiver with only German channel (BVN only). The hostess was very attentive and gave everything to be able to use it. The play barn is used by the children. Beautiful area for walking and cycling. The station and the shops are 10 minutes away. Recommended for people with children (good bedding) who want peace but also want outing. We, two families with a total of four children, had a great week. Something to come back. Again
