Every morning we received an amazing breakfast with fresh fruit and homemade bread. Jeannie baked some great cakes, she even prepared a lunchbox with cake and fresh cream.... More

Greg & Jeannie are just incredible, this was a top notch experience from the first moments we met them. Upon arrival-... More

This is in fact the best BB we ever visited: The hosts were very friendly and very helpful (we really felt like visiting some distant relatives). The room was very nicely furnished, with a terrace and a great view, overlooking the river. The breakfast was great, with homemade bread. We highly recommend a stay there!

They think of every detail. If you need something, you can just ask them. As a first location, it couldn't have been better, and it never got any better! Over... More
