Das schöne mittelalterliche Flair der Gebäude, die sich wunderbar in die bewaldete Hügellandschaft einpassen hat uns vom ersten Tag begeistert. Der weite Blick von der Terrasse und die erholsame Ruhe sind sehr eindrucksvoll. Leider hat es ein wenig an Komfort gemangelt. Die Beleuchtung in den Räumen mit kleinen Fenstern war sehr spärlich. Leider gab es nicht vor allen Fenstern Insektennetze und die Küchenutensilien wie Töpfe, Besteck und Geschirr sind sehr alt, gebraucht und einfach. Es gibt kein Feuerzeug für den Gasherd und keine Polster für die Terrassenstühle. Leider gibt es in der Wohnung weder Mobilfunkempfang noch WLAN. Aber das ist manchmal ja auch nicht schlecht. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und bemüht.
