Nice friendly airport. Everything worked fine.
The parking is on grass and you need to be careful how you taxi to the parking position because there is a strip of stones marking off the parking area.
I had arranged hangarage because it was winter (well, almost) and I didn't want the plane covered in ice when departing. Hangarage was available for about €10/night but only if one of the based hangared aircraft was away.
A highly scenic approach. I descended for about 20 miles through the canyon from the west, having cancelled IFR way back at FL150.
They have prescribed VFR paths and watch you very carefully to make sure you follow them, and get quite excited on the radio if you don't do it. There can be a lot of other traffic in the circuit so one has to watch out.
