    The room we had was more like a studio apartment with bedroom, bathroom, living room and small kitchen. It was clean, comfortable and the breakfast delicious and beautifully prepared. Warmly welcomed.

    The owners and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast will serve directly in the apartement, it´s a wonderful and good breakfast. There´s a big terrace with sun lies and a small pool area.
