With our concept we want to fill all the gaps that we experienced during our holidays as private holiday-makers, with and without children.
From directions that lead to nowhere, to inadequately equipped apartments, which do not have a contact person and that no one on site feels responsible for, from missing breakfast coffee after the first night to incalculable extra charges and supplements.
Together with your booking confirmation you will receive a sketch with the directions that will lead you safely and without detours. In your temporary home you will find an initial equipment containing soft drinks as well as a breakfast basket.
To plan your trips you won't have to do research, collect brochures and buy street maps because with us elaborate suggestions await you that are easily accomplished with an already programmed GPS.
