The courtyard is better than pictures show with sun directly in at the end of the day. Only reason stopping 5 stars is that the stairs to the 3rd floor bedroom are very steep and turn very sharply at the top, not easy to get cases to if you are not fit and suffer from any joint problems.

Step out your front door and you are a few steps from the middle of one of the most charming little medieval cities in France. If you don't think the house is charming, look out the window. About one in five tourists passing by stops to take a picture. Inside everything is equally charming. As a "Francophone" as a second language, I personally would've preferred to have French TV, French books, etc. For Anglophones, it's perfect. There are books, guidebooks and television that you will understand. Yes, the stairway is narrow, the door frames are for people about 5'6" and the bathroom is small. You're staying in a house that was built in the 1300s. If you want charm and ambience and history, that's part of it. I loved it.
