After a desperate search to find a room the day after New Year's Eve, we could but hoping for a miracle. Our wildest wishes were fullfilled when we spotted light in what looked like a fairy tale house. Though the pension was actually closed, the owner gave us a warm welcome and rushed to prepare a room for us. And what a room! Heavenly cosy and warm with a lovely, soothing colour scheme. Even the bedding and linnen were a joy to the eye. The breakfast was equally rewarding: tasty, fresh, served in a beautiful living room full of antiques, including an amazing old coal stove. The owner, a friendly, soft spoken, knowledgeable young gentleman was a joy to talk to. We felt like pampered guests and left with a warm, wonderful feeling. We would come back any time and even make a huge detour to stay there again.
Outstanding value for money is an additional bonus.
