  • The house is in a nondescript street but do not let that...

    The house is in a nondescript street but do not let that be a detractor! It is a superb bach with everything that opens and shuts. The property is furnished and decorated to a very high standard and the fireplace is an absolute positive of this property. With ample firewood provided we were warm and cozy. Quiet area but so close to the bars and restaurants - nice brisk walk and you're there. We were in need of a rest and this bach ticked all the boxes for us.
