Jerom Family rooms

Our 2 family rooms are furnished to experience a cosy family feeling and give the kids their own space at the same time. We made a cosy mezzanine on top of the bathroom, where younger children can sleep (5 – 12 years). This Jerom Family room also includes the same facilities as our Jerom Standard rooms…
