    Lovely accommodation with nice outside space. Not to far from the town but in a quiet, peaceful area. It was just what we needed to get over the jet lag. Perfect. Thank you

    I loved the location, close to everything, yet in a quiet wide street, great for parking and walking to town or to the river, both about five minutes walk away. The apartment had everything you needed and was really attractive inside and out. It was private even though on owners land. Comfy bed and uber fantastic shower. The kitchen had all you need. Good TV and entertainment system with CD's to choose from. Outside table and chairs to relax in overlooking garden, you had privacy inside and out.
