At a glance the web site gave an impression of secluded accommodation in a natural setting by the lake. In reality this is a downstairs flat of a residential house on a small section tucked between other residential houses close to the lake. It was great to know that only natural cleaning products are used for this accommodation - a definite plus. The rooms are small. Can hear people walking upstairs in the morning. The rooms and bathroom are clean and tidy. The kitchen facility is good.
We were keen to get away from cell towers in the main town and be closer to nature. This was unfortunately substituted by wifi (practically a mini-celltower in the upstairs flat). There were no other tenants staying on the night and I asked the host to turn off the wi-fi modem during the night. According to my electrosmog meter this was not done. In the morning we also noticed a large electromagnetic field from electric underfloor heating in the kitchen area. This accommodation is definitely not for people who are looking to get away from electropollution.
