Real reviews from and other booking sites

A nicely renovated countryside house with a big courtyard for children to play ball. A quiet place to relax (on large and comfortable beds) with a great view from the backyard of the property to the church on the hill. Lots of places to visit in the region with quality hiking paths through the nearby hills. Very friendly and welcoming hosts.

The beds were as good as you could possibly wish for, and no picture can fully reflect the awesome location of this house. Plenty (!!) of room and no complaints at all.

Rudolf, Netherlands

We spent a whole week in the house. We had a great time there and were truely sorry to leave. Very warm welcome, very nice and helpful host speaking English as native speaker. Old, renovated and cosy house with spacious yard. Excellent for a group of friends. Definitelly has a slow-life aura. The place is quiet as in a small village. Good starting point for trips to surranding mountains. I recommend the house for everyone who doesn't like crowded, modern and vibrant places.
