“A great house, and a unbelievable view on the lac. That was a real pleasure to wake up every morning with this view. The house is very comfortable and practice. We will be back for sur. Best regards from Belgium”-Reda October 2019
“You could not find a more stunning location for a house, even in the bad weather! House was well stocked and very clean. Although it sleeps 9 the living space is really only for 6. We had a lovely holiday and would happily go back-Stunning location.”-Meadhbh August 2019
“Nice place to get away from everything. The house is is a beautiful remote location but close enough to small shops and amenities. Rooms are all large and very comfortable. Great kitchen, all you need, great fireplaces that use turf. We understand it is remote but there is no WiFi and the option to use the payable dongle is not great. It took €20 and within 1 hour of very light browsing the €20 ran out. Don’t waste your money on the dongle. Go to the cafe instead. The hosts are excellent. We had a great holiday. We would love to come back.”- Joe July 2018
“Breathtakingly beautiful. Loved the location and the house. Will almost certainly return to same place. Only downside is 1 bathroom for larger groups sharing is difficult. Also one bed is a queen size – cramped for 2 adults. Otherwise best location I’ve ever stayed in!!” Franchine July 2018
