"Cute, over-equipped, peaceful, british... one of the best I've been all over Europe"
If the photos are nice, the reality is even better!!. One of those houses you are willing to arrive at, after a whole day of tourist visits, to rest and enjoy of. Super clean, super comfortable, super British, with this fantastic backyard. A big, cute and over-equipped kitchen with all the devices and cooking accessories you may imagine (even with an italian/spanish style coffee heater!). With enough room to host five persons, there's a big and easy to set folded double bed at the living room. And the surroundings are lovely and peaceful, with this canal for narrow boats in front of the house where you can go for a relaxing walking. High speed WiFi, HD TV (screen not too large) with DVD, large screen TV in one of the bedrooms. There's a private parking bay just in front of the house, so no worries with your car. The communication with the property was fluid and easy. The only problem was that the system rejected my credit card (despite fully operative) and I had to pay through bank transfer.
