Well positioned for discovering the area. The swimming pool was excellent with different seating areas in the sun and shade. Ann and Frederick were very welcoming and attentive hosts. A perfect place to stay.

Very hot when we were there and we made good use of the fans provided. Well stocked carrefour on the square also although it is worth seeking out the smaller speciality shops as well as stocking up at the Saturday market in the square. A lively location.
