Erholung pur!

  • 5 of 5

Wir, das sind zwei Familien mit insgesamt sechs Kindern, verbrachten zwei Wochen in dem sehr ruhig und idyllisch gelegenen Ferienhaus. Der große Pool und die herrliche Aussicht boten Entspannung und Erholung pur. Sehr angenehm war auch der überdachte Außensitzbereich mit Grill und Pizzaofen. Die Vermieterin lieferte uns auf Wunsch leckere hausgemachte Lasagne und frischen Pizzateig zur Zubereitung im Ofen.

Für den Aufenthalt mit Kindern sehr zu empfehlen, da durch die Lage des Hauses niemand gestört wird. Das Domizil war sauber und positiv war auch, das Handtücher in großer Anzahl und Auswahl vorhanden waren.
