There are comfy lounge areas where kids can just sit back and relax, next to the Norwegian wood stove on chillier nights. Sofas can be arranged in order to create a cinema-style room for everyone to watch a film together. 2 apartments have separate lounges for anyone wanting a bit of privacy and quiet time.
