Karl met us an showed us round and had put the hot tub on so it was nice and hot. The apartment is ideally situated within walking distance of the town and close to some nice restaurants. I would have no hesitation in recommending the apartment to anyone.

The property itself was a good size, and was in excellent condition. The owner was quick to reply to all questions. I cannot think of anywhere else I would want to stay if I came back. Tom
