Covered in ivy and other climbing plants that change color with each passing season- it blends marvelously into its surroundings and only the little lake occasionally betrays its presence by revealing its reflection. You will love the comfy dolls house interiors. For fans of extreme sensations an aero-club will teach you the rudiments of flying above the many historical sites in the area.
