The whole property is very nice. Although it is located at a distance from the city, it is quite easy and fast to get there by car. The room was very spacious and clean. The decoration was nice and the premises (farm) looked nice, however our stay was very short and did not have time to wander around. The owners were very friendly and helpful.
