    Hello, We are planning to book for 4 nights from 22 october but we are arriving with 2 bicycles. Is it possible to put them inside ( safe ) and is it possible to pick us up at the airport with the 2 bicycles and luggage and 2 persons? So a taxi is to small, it has to be a van or pick up. If we have your answer, we can book. Thank you so much. Francine and Hans , the Netherlands
