Excellent equipped apartment with all your needs and then more. Bright, spacious and comfortable with balcony overlooking the forest. Location is situated for many interesting days out especially for walks in forest or by lake. We will definitely be making a return visit.

The bedroom is a good size with a large bed which was also very comfortable The Kitchen is well equipped with every thing you need The patio can be enjoyed Rain or Shine as the Balcony above gives excellent cover In the town we found many different restaurants, all with outside eating areas Martin was very helpful , nothing was too much trouble , and his English was perfect
