He took us round the property explaining local amenities. He had left a bottle of local cider and on the Sunday morning we were pleasantly surprised to receive from him a small bag of croissants. We enjoyed being at the property and on departure Christophe gave us a small present of chocolates and discovered that he is a chocaltier.
