Superbe maison de vacances avec une terrasse fantastique et des couchés de soleil à couper le souffle ! La piscine est superbe et nous avons pu en profiter pleinement, le jardin offre des coins d’ombres pour les siestes. Sarah et Claude sont accueillants et toujours disponibles pour les conseils et pour les réservations. Les activités sont nombreuses ; randonnées à partir du gîte, lacs, dégustations des vins (merci Sarah et Claude)… Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour, nous recommandons fortement cette adresse.
