Cottage

Bei Buchung eines cottages sollte man am besten ein großes Cottage per Mail reservieren. Die Größe und der comfort ist sehr unterschiedlich. Das Personal ist sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich.

Good place to stay near Carmel

We stopped spontaneously in Carmel on a roadtrip along the coast. The hotel was basic but clean. It's in a quiet spot a bit out of town. If you are stopping over, I can recommend it.
