What our guests say…

Un moment de grâce chez Mariken et Ron. Dans ce hâvre de paix, tout a une âme : les constructions, en particulier le chalet, les arbres, les sourires, les pizzas. Le plus embêtant dans tout ça, c’est quand on se rend compte qu’il faut déjà partir, quitter ce petit paradis… avec une idée en tête : trouver une occasion pour revenir! Un grand merci à Mariken et toute sa famille !
