Heerlijke vakantie die je blijft herinneren. Ten eerste is het een prachtige plek met uniek uitzicht (vooral van genieten vanuit de Jacuzzi), warme ontvangst en elke dag goede wandel tips of advies voor excursies. Je hoeft je niet voor te bereiden. Uitstekende gastvrouw- en gastheer, zeer uitgebreid ontbijt met veel verse- en huisgemaakte produkten. Heerlijk afwisselend wandelgebied en geijkt om te onthaasten en bij te komen. Wij hebben in een tijd niet zo gelachen, je voelt je er meteen thuis, dankjewel Annelies en Eugene!!
