                              What a beautiful place. The accomodation was clean, well decorated and had everything you need. The only improvement would be to increase the size of the gass stove - we were in unit 1 and the the two gas hobs were so close together that you could not actually put two pots or pans on at the same time. The highlight was the incredible setting with a pristine river front and the most inredible star gazing. Wil be back!
