House photo corresponds to the Belleville site. house in a very quiet location. there near the lake. many trails for hiking. the house is equipped with everything you need, but do not have such basic things like toilet paper, garbage bags. appeal to the owners on this issue has not been satisfied. owners advised to buy in the super. the hosts are not very keen to help.

The town is a delight with many good restaurants and historic sites. The accommodation is clean and modern, yet retaining the old character of this centrally located home. Janine was a very helpful host.

De Duif was very warm and comfortable and had everything we needed and the log burner had the house warm in a few minutes. A perfect base to go out exploring the local countryside on our tandem cycle - Cycling is very good here. A superb holiday location, we couldn't have wished for better. Jeremy and Jan
