Fantastic welcome by out hosts Margot and Wim. Nothing too much trouble, and the best B&B breakfast I have had. House and rooms are SPOTLESS, with crisp white linen in our room. Ample space to accommodate an extra bed for our daughter. Room facilities include Nespresso machine, minibar, TV, HIFI, WIFI, safe etc. Very secure.
