Perfect location. Close to the city but still hidden away nice and quite.

Excellent stay. Spotlessly clean, convenient and comfy. Nice to find real milk in fridge and all the little things you don't find in a hotel or managed apartment. O was travelling with elderly parents and the lack of steps and easy access made it easy for my father with his his walker. I would recommend for short and longer stays. Close enough to everything for tourists and visiting workers.
