A little slice of Paradise
December 24, 2013
The house is even better than it appears on the website! My husband and I return again and again. The house is clean and comfortable, and the views are lovely. Can't say enough good things, really. There are so many basic supplies in the house, and a little food store is a five minute walk away, so you could get away with just staying in and doing nothing for days---we have done this, enjoying the interesting books and videos, and looking at the surrounding beauty when we didn't feel like adventuring. It's a great place to unwind! The double garage, with a remote, yet, is another bonus.
The kitchen is great. I am a serious cook, and I have found everything I needed to cook some pretty fine meals there. If you are not in the mood to cook, though, there is a nice family restaurant just steps away, and others nearby, including several inside an interesting nearby mountain with shooting ranges of every sort. (No, you can't hear them in the restaurants or outside the mountain!)
We have enjoyed the comfortable and adjustable beds--at least in the second bedroom, you can raise the top ends of them.
After enduring iffy internet connections in other houses/apartments we have rented, it is always great to have a good, high speed wifi at this one AND a printer.
The owners, who speak English, German, French, and more, are delightful people to deal with, and they' make every effort to ensure that you have a wonderful stay, which is why they have so many "regulars" who return year after year. No hidden charges or ugly surprises here. Unless you want the boat, the price is all-inclusive.
I have recommended this house to many friends. It is a great getaway for anyone except handicapped people who can't navigate relatively shallow steps with handrails.
Every time we leave, we feel like we haven't been there long enough, and we can't wait to get back!
