Lovely apartment in beautiful area with lots to do and see and ideal for walking. However it didn't have an information book so we had to Google recycling, local information etc and had no safety information. There was only 2 sets of crockery which was inconvenient, more baking equipment would have made cooking easier. The cafe was also closed all Read moreweek so we didn't get the benefit of that or to meet the hosts. Overall we were slightly disappointed in our stay Hide

If anybody is looking at the photos and is slightly concerned that headroom might be restricted by the eaves, we did not find this s problem. The apartment is more spacious that the photos allow.
