Beautiful mansion needing renovation

  • 2 of 5

We had booked the main building for one week. It is a beautiful very large building in a nice setting. However the building is in need of renovation, especially the bathrooms. Unfortunately we encountered quite a number of mice in the kitchen, hallway and one bedroom and decided to leave early due to that.

There was another family at the same time in the side building who seemed to be happy with that. If you are contemplating renting, the side building might actually be the better choice.

Magnificent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Flygel in the summer of 2013 (I was unable to fill in the correct dates as my review comes a bit late) and I can seriously recommend it. The peninsula is a great place to explore: extremely quiet, many nice bays and beaches. We did a lot of cycling here which is absolutely recommendable. The harbour at the tip has a small restaurant which is fine for a quick meal. The Flygel house is big enough for the six we were with and it lies in a wonderful quiet, green area, next to the historic big manor house. Clean, nicely decorated - recommendable.
