We hebben een super week gehad. Alleen was het huis niet schoon. Daar zijn we de eerste twee dagen zelf druk mee geweest. Verder is de routebeschrijving zeer onduidelijk vrienden zijn twee uur bezig geweest om bestemming te vinden. Zou ook een aanrader zijn om deze in het Nederlands te maken.
Verder staan er bij jullie op de site foto's die niet bij dit huis horen. Zo was de ruimte met open haard en lange tafel buiten onder een soort veranda niet bij ins huis maar bij het huis van de eigenaar. Jammer want dat was een reden waarom we deze accommodatie geboekt hadden , dan konden we nl buiten eten. Nu hebben we in de keuken moeten eten toch jammer met deze temperaturen. Buiten was er ook niet echt de mogelijkheid om met 11 man te eten er was geen geschikt meubilair voor. Ook het aangegeven voetbalveld was bij het huis van de beheerder , dus daar konden de kinderen geen gebruik van maken.
Zwembad sinds juni dit jaar nieuw , helemaal top. wij hebben verder een geweldige week gehad .
Locatie was schitterend!
