Sehr geschmackvoll gestaltetete Altstadwohnung mit viel Liebe zum Detail. Auch die Ausstattung lässt keine Wünsche offen. Besonderes Highlight ist die große Terrasse mit Blick ins Grüne. Selbst im Dezember war ein Frühstück bei angenehmen Temperaturen möglich. Sehr netter Kontakt zur Eigentümerin und Verwalterin. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder....

It is beautifully furnished, very romantic with three terraces on different levels. Kitchen is modern and equipped with every thinkable item you may need for your holiday. Bed is big and comfy and the house just smells lovely. Even though only 5 mins from the centre of town and beach-front it so quiet. Log burner was an added luxury and had some lovely candlelit dinners by the fire. Lucky the resident cat who lives on the terrace, would greet us in the morning, if only cupboard love as Jean had left us treats if we wished to spoil her. Thank you Jean for a very memorable week in your lovely home.
