A very charming and beautifully decorated place! Super clean and well organized with everything you could need provided in the room. I highly suggest a walk around town to check out the old 19th century buildings and quaint shops as well.

I would without a doubt recommend, clean, quiet, private access. Ticked all the right boxes. Regrettably I didn't get to meet our hosts and thank them personally.
