The house and the garden are charming. The river flows just by the window. Ruby and Thomas, the hosts, are very nice and generous. They would help with any question or need. You get the feeling you are a part of the family, and Ruby's cooking is amazing. I wish we could visit there again. Highly recommended for couples.

The welcome in this lovely situated homestay is overwhelming! Ruby does everything to feel you at home and more. It's hard not to gain weight because of the excellent meals presented at breakfast, lunch and dinner. The couple also arranges several very nice activities around their location, of which the mountain drive is definately a top choice!
