The only difficulty we had was in trying to locate the property. It would have been good to have a landmark such as the Dauphine Hotel. The equipment was all very good and the host was very helpful.

Everything has been thought of to make your stay as easy and comfortable as possible. We loved it! Thank you Nicole !
