    Eenvoudig ingerichte gite. Wel compleet qua inrichting.
    In een rustige landelijke omgeving.
    Mooie grote tuin, fijn zwembad om af te koelen. Aardige behulpzame eigenaar.
    Zeer lieve hond.

    Hebben het wederom heerlijk gehad in deze gite. Alles was weer tot in de puntjes geregeld. Zijn hier een aantal keren tot volle tevredenheid geweest. Jammer dat we de eigenaar nog steeds niet hebben ontmoet. Gaat ook niet meer gebeuren. De gite is zeker een aanrader.

    Wederom gekozen voor deze gite. Was weer geweldig, echt thuiskomen. Het huis was al in prima staat maar er zijn wat aanpassingen gedaan. Is er nog beter op feworden. Het is hier heerlijk vertieven. Het echte vakantiegevoel. De “tuin” is een paradijs als je van dieren houdt. Zeer veel eigen terrein net veel vogeltjes. Lana, we hebben het weer heel fijn gehad en je ziet ons weer terug. Hopelijk is je man dan niet varen 😅, kunnen we eens kennismaken. De week na jou huis was een disaste, te skecht voor woorden. Jij hebt je zaakjes goed op orde en het is fantastisch verblijven. Tot de volgende keer!
