It is a very nice cottage in a very calm location. It does have an ambiance. Garden is also super-fantastic, especially for young kids. Facilities of the house (heating, warm water, kitchen utilities) are also absolutely okay. We would have appreciated a newer broom and a nicer dustpan. And also, if you want to make fried eggs for breakfast, bring your own non-stick frying pan, because there is none. No cutting board either.
This apartment is in a beautifully converted chateau, we were really impressed with the quality of everything, it all looked built to last, nothing done on the cheap, and quite a spectacular range of kitchen equipment (dishwasher, deep fat fryer, pressure cooker, loads and loads of crockery, there was more stuff than we have at home!). A lot has been achieved in a relatively small space and it never felt cramped. The spiral staircase helped - it wouldn't suit anyone unsteady on their feet but we loved it, it added character. We got a really warm welcome when we arrived, as well as a helpful selection of maps and guides which we made good use of. I wished we had brought our bicycles as this area is really well set-up for cycling with various green ways linking the towns and villages. Things to be aware of - WiFi was pretty much non-existent in the apartment itself you can usually get it in the communal courtyard where there are tables and chairs set up, but does occasionally drop off there too. Also, the building is right opposite an enormous church whose bells will wake you at 7am without fail each day. In the unlikely event that you manage to sleep through that, the eight o'clock bongs (91 in total, I counted) will finish the job. One for the early risers!
