    “The cottage felt and looked old and tired , and there was stickers everywhere telling us what to do or not to do.”

    I think the owner's may have decided to stop renting as there is a for sale sign outside. The electricity is on meter for normal and a second onefor storage heaters at 6 euros per heater per day I think it was, we never used them so did not test it. Cleanliness was poor overall with things like the window frames dirty / damp the cottage on arrival had many Windows open and smelt damp. The cooker looked old and a sign said clean after use which is a bit insulting as who would leave it dirty.
