Lovely cottage with a picturesque view

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in the cottage! We were fall in love with the house immediately. It was lovely, welcoming and well equipped. The surrounding was scenic, quiet and mesmerizing. The owner was very flexible and friendly. It was a pleasure to be in contact with her. The instructions in the house were clear and there were plenty ideas and booklets about the attractions nearby. We had a nice family time there. Thank you!
