    We did not park either, but there were several parking areas in the location. Not sure if they were public or private. But, the suggestion about calling them (or, perhaps, sending them an e-mail) is an excellent idea.

    Good, simple. Cafes nearby which presumably will serve breakfast. Hope you enjoy.
