Perfect accommodation for our family with two toddlers.
Debbie the owner was super friendly and helpful, recommending numerous things to do and see for the family and booking local restaurants for us. The Gensake just round the corner is excellent!
Great location just a couple of minutes walk (with toddlers) to the Bakery for fresh Baguettes and Croissants.
We all loved our stay and would highly recommend.
