This was probably the best of them all. The property was immaculate, superbly equipped, comfortable and quietly situated in a charming rural hamlet populated by charming people. If we are able we will return here again very soon. We have no hesitation in recommending this property to friends and family. The owner could not have been more helpful and contributed to our enjoyment of a fabulous holiday

Annette and Jason are great hosts and very helpful with any questions that you may have.
