The Owner Recommends


Only an hours drive but well worth it. Pretty town which stands in the shadow of the old town which is set high on a hill. Wander through the old town filled with craft shops and restaurants to the ruins of a medievil castle where you will find one of the best Birds of Prey show we have seen. In the morning you could try the velorail a unique experienced where you travel the old railway line powered by pedal power.
