Beautiful & relaxing

4 of 5
We had a wonderful stay. The hosts were very welcoming. The children loved the pool, perfect size for them. Everything has been thought of in the house, including a coffee machine & fully equipped kitchen. Very clean, comfortable & spacious. The area was picturesque & quiet. Waking to the smell of lavender each morning was a treat. Local village 12mins drive away in car for fresh croissants & bread, & local market once a week. Local town 35mins drive. Highly recommended.

Very spacious cottage with beautiful views!

5 of 5
Deceptively spacious and clean accommodation. Very peaceful with privacy from owners. Great location surrounded by lavender fields. Many facilities a short drive away in Sault. Ideal base to explore the area and its many attractions.
