Very nice little town. It used to be very isolated but now it is worth the visit. Learn about the history of the people who used to live there. I understand that the Wooden Shoe museum is nice to visit but we did not go...More

This little place used to be an island. It is charming but must be very busy at times, so be careful when you visit
