Returning to Balenbouche at night after a long day of driving, adventuring, and enjoying the beautiful island felt like coming home. The estate itself felt like our yard, and the cottage like our own little private home. We even felt like we knew the dogs well. Moreover, Verena helped us plan our itinerary for locations and local events, and this was very much appreciated. For roaming around the southern to middle part of the island (the north is a little farther away), it would be tough to beat this location as lodging.
