A 180° view to dream of. We were only withnthe two of us so having two bathrooms is a luxury and everything was very well maintained. The kitchen is fully equiped and everythingbis nice and clean. Jochen and Marie are very friendly and have a great personal input and approach. We felt home since the beginning. Nice was it also that they had forseen icecold beverages when we arrived. Thank you so much for a wonderfull two weeks. Grts, Roger and Han
