Rated 5 out of 5 by from A home away from home! The hosts, Gabi and Neal, are just exceptional. Not only do they respond to messages and questions promptly, but they go to great lengths to ensure you enjoy your stay. The little touches and the thoughtfulness in the amenities for guests, is second to none. If you're looking for a holiday home, that feels like a home away from home, then this gorgeous cottage is the right place for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A most welcoming 'home' We really enjoyed our stay. Nothing was overlooked. Old-world charm. It was quiet and relaxing even though in the middle of the town.
