    De eigenaar bood ons aan gebruik te maken van de keuken van die eigenlijk bedoeld was voor het hostel. Dit maakte koken aangenaam. + koelkast aanwezig . De toiletten en douches waren erg schoon!

    Disliked: 

    Douchen is prijzig. 1 euro voor 7 minuten. Ook voor het gebruik van de föhn moet een munt ingeworpen worden.

    Fully equipped kitchen if you don't have your own stuff!!!! Little wood at the back of site the kids loved. Everything was really clean and well kept. Plenty of space for the pitches. Derry, the man who runs the place, is the nicest person ever!!!

    Disliked: 

    Maybe a notice on the shower doors to ask people to leave their shoes outside would prevent the drying off area getting muddy. Helpful when getting back into clean clothes after shower.
