The Apartment was great, right in the centre, within walking distance of virtually everything. A really good base. Comfortable beds and space. It was kind of Sabine and Martin to meet us and to provide the basics that helped as we arrived quite late. Just some advice book a restaurant for the evening as we didn't and we found it difficult to find somewhere on a Friday night.

Es war unser zweiter Aufenthalt und sicherlich nicht der Letzte... Das Haus bietet genügend Platz für ein grosse Gruppe wie wir es waren und ist ideal für 3 Familien, die sich auch einmal jeweils in ein Bereich den Hauses zurückziehen konnten (falls nötig...). Der Wohnbereich inkl. grossen Garten und die super ausgestattete Küche laden zum gemütlichen Beisammensein und gemeinsame Kochabende ein. Alles (Strand, Stadt, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten) in guter Erreichbarkeit. Insgesamt saubere, schön eingerichtete Unterkunft, in der man sich sofort wie zu Hause fühlt.
