I would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to relax and get away from lifes fast pace. Petite, cosy and it has everything you need. Has a washing machine so no need to pay to have clothing washed. Very hospitable landlord and cleaning service if required. Has two separate beds as well as a private garden. Centrally located with a mall and Spar down the road. Greeted with a pleasant nougat chocolate on arrival. :)

Our stay with Luci was perfect. She was attentive and kind. The room was really nicely kept and comfortable. The kitchen, though mini, was perfectly fine for managing a small family for nearly a week! Thanks for a lovely send-off from SA x Becky and Frans
