  • The cottage is a little paradies

    The cottage is a little paradies. Very nice furnished, very clean and quit big. The best place you can find in that area. The best accomodation we rented ever. Das Cottage liegt zauberhaft im Grünen und denoch zentral was Einkaufs- und Ausflugsmöglichkeiten betrifft. Ein kleines Paradies für Kinder und Erwachsene. Es ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichte und groß. Ideal auch für einen längeren Aufenthalt in NZ.
