Lovely, Spacious Apartment

5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our 2 weeks' stay. The apartment is very comfortable, roomy & well-equipped. It also has a spacious covered terrace (complete with both a comfy seating area & a dining area). Whilst the very pleasant owners live on the ground floor, they were not in the least intrusive (+ the apartment has a separate entrance).

Great place for large famy holiday.

5 of 5
We were 5 kids & 7 adults and this was a great place for having fun at home and visiting nearby attractions. The pool was a big hit, though not heated, it is covered so stays warm. House has large garden, so very private, but close enough for Grandpa to walk to the boulanger for pain au chocolat every morning.
