Arriving by boat was very calming and pretty special. Our hosts were very welcoming and helped us to explore the area including by bike, the sunset boat ride was also a good experience and the best way to see and understand the local community at work and play - much more interesting than the larger boat rides. The food was delicious. The room was in a beautiful old wood building in a pretty garden. We would thoroughly recommend it.
