Cosy and enchanting.

5 of 5
The cabin was just perfect, we were more than suprised when we go there. The place is very quiet with fields and lakes close by. The local LIDL market was 5 mins away in the car. The cabin had everything you could need with the amazing wood burner which I could not leave alone. Overall we are very pleased. The one thing we would change is weather :)
