A very comfortable and welcoming house, beautifully situated at the lake side. Peace and quiet reigns. Hosts went above and beyond what was necessary to make our stay just perfect. Would highly recommend.

We were welcomed with a cup of tea and self-made cookies and cakes. We had the back room with a great view over the garden and the lake, so quiet...
