It has been tastefully decorated and furnished and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Our hosts, Joelle and Didier, could not have been more welcoming, and wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. We would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation, and will hopefully visit again one day.
