Had a great stay here. The owners really make such an effort to provide all the essentials so theres no need to bring them with you. The accommodation was clean and comfortable throughout. It is located up quite a steep hill and quite a lot of cars whizz through so be mindful if you have small children. There is a good playground 5-10 mins walk awaRead morey down the hill, and a friendly butcher just around the corner where you can get all basic groceries. Hide
