We hadden een heel prettig verblijf in dit schattige huisje. Het is werkelijk het mooiste vakwerkhuisje van het dorp. Het huisje lag perfect op weg naar onze skivakantie bestemming (Oberwiessentahl). Diana heeft ons nog geholpen met een paar tips voor wandelingen in de omgeving. Dit huisje is echt een aanrader!
