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

We enjoyed the house and pool but especially the kitchen which was very well equipped with more than we needed. Hugh and Gillian were great hosts, they were always available for any questions but never intrusive. We would recommend the house as a good holiday home in a nice area.
