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.
