Auberge très sympathique, propre et calme. Mais le véritable point positif, c'est les propriétaires : accueillants, adorables, toujours le sourire et prêts à tout pour rendre votre séjour simple et agréable. Je recommande plutôt 2 fois qu'une !

Budget meal tip

Supermarché Bonus ou Kronan pour manger pas cher. Mais se permettre un resto de temps en temps pour bien manger et goûter les spécialités locales !
