My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights and absolutely loved it. We had room 4 which we think had the best view and the biggest outside area. View was stunning - room beautiful. Fantastic bathroom. Ole and Linda were exceptional hosts - happy to book and recommend trips and meals. The breakfasts were unsurpassed - best fruit salad...

We staid in the lovely large room at the pool level, allowing an early morning swim before breakfast ... which was absolutely fantastic with the best croissants outside France, fresh juice, healthy joghurt, some home made cakes or muffins, your choice of eggs and sometimes something special like French Toast. Linda and Ole are genuinely inviting, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful...

Ole and Linda did everything to make their guests happy. The whole house has been built by to accommodate the B&B. If there is a guidebook on how to make a B&B work, it's been written by those two. Even Dakota and Zoe (their two dogs) seem to be living up their high standard and were always ready for a...
