Four-bedroom farmhouse in the countryside. All of the four double bedrooms are en suite with luxury shower and bath. Farm kitchen with barbecue, tables and chairs outside. Great for groups of friends. The supermarket is half an hour by car and you can take a train from the village into the city. Escape from normal life for a few days as we have … NO INTERNET and you can only use mobile phones at the bottom of the garden!

I prefer to stay in farmhouse if only haft an hour to drive to the supermarket. On my vacation, I usually to stay in a quiet place because it is the time to relax.

I'd choose the first option. I definitely love the contact with the nature and the countryside, but a place with no internet is hard for me to stay in as I consider wi-fi an important communication tool.

Without any doubt I would choose the farmhouse because I love the countryside, it’s quiet and rounded by nature, the chirping of birds and green everywhere it’s really good for rest.

Thanks for the episode.
Great site!
