The apartment itself is fantastic, we've found that everything was take care of, all the little things you may need were supplied. The festive spirit didn't leave us the whole time during our stay - lots of tastefully done decorations, several Christmas trees, the fire, the view, it was perfect. Thank you, it felt like home here.
