Es war ein sehr schöner Kurzurlaub für die gesamte Familie. Die Jugendherberge liegt ausgesprochen romantisch und es gibt sehr viele und schöne Ausflugsziele in der Umgebung. Auch im Herbst (z.B. zum Wandern) eine empfehlenswerte Adresse.

Gutes Haus. Bequemes "Wohnzimmer" wäre noch nett gewesen. Da gehe ich gerne wieder hin.
