  • Does the guest-house have an elevator?

    No. Our guest-house was built in the 17th century. At that time, space to house an elevator had not been conceived. The interior of the building is partially under monument protection. An elevator is therefore not installed.

    Our guest-house is not suitable for people with disabilities. If you have trouble climbing stairs, we advise you not to book here.

    No. As a vegetarian, you can enjoy breakfast with us, without any issues. Cheese, cereal, fruit, juices and yogurt are suitable for vegetarians. We do not offer vegan, gluten-free and lactose-free food. You will also search in vain on our buffet table, for special food (E.g. goat's milk).
