Mysigt och lyxigt

5 of 5
Vi trivdes från första stund i huset som har en härlig atmosfär och känns hemvant från första stund extra plus att hundar är tillåtna , den privata poolen höjer ytterligare nivån på trivseln. Läget är det bästa tänkbara mitt i naturen men ändå nära till stadsliv och sevärdheter . Vandringslederna omväxlande och väl utmärkta möjlighet tiil vinturism bra. Vi rekommenderar gärna till alla som vill ha ultimat avkoppling och som vill upptäcka nya platser att stanna här gärna 2 veckor för att hinna med allt.Fördel om man kommer med egen bil annars är hyrbil att rekommendera

Absolutely superb

5 of 5
It was our first time driving in France. Despite the distance every inch was worth the journey. The accommodation was excellent, the views were stunning and our hosts, Sarah & Claude, were so welcoming. Sarah in particular not only has a vast knowledge of the area she is also a very good cook. Nothing was too much trouble, even accompanying us to the vet to make sure we were understood. Thank you to all the family.
