Wat een geweldige lokatie! Prima huis, precies zoals op de website staat. Niets op aan te merken. Prima ingericht, schoon, volledig uitgeruste keuken. Alles in de buurt, supermarkt, slager, bakker. Lana is een prima gastvrouw en heeft leuke kinderen. Gastheer niet ontmoet, zit op de grote vaart. Volgende keer misschien? De rust, de stilte, genieten van vogeltjes en kikkers. Gezellige kippen die langskomen voor een stukje brood. Poes houdt van sardientjes met knoflook. Hond is superenthousiast. We hebben een topvakantie gehad. Een echte aanrader. Lana, bedankt! Je ziet ons terug.
