Our cottage was build in 1901. We renovated it and continue taking care of it. We hope you will take as much care of it as we, pay attention to our neighbours and respect the quietness in our neighbourhood at night..
We cannot accept dogs and cats and you may smoke but only outside the house. We would like you to water our plants in the courtyard and open a window in the bathroom when you shower, take the garbage out when you leave the house, collect your sheets and towels and put them in a plastic bag, clean the stove, take care of bath and wc and clean the refrigerator before you leave :)
