The accommodation was lovely and exceptionally well equipped, including a torch that we could use at night as we strolled back along the canal after lovely meals in local restaurants! Wendy was very welcoming and helpful. The information folder provided re local attractions, restaurants etc was excellent and it became our bible! The location is beautiful. We were surrounded by vineyards and were able to watch the grapes being harvested from just outside the property. There are lovely places to visit on foot, by bikes (which were provide) and by car. With the exception of 2-3 days, the weather was beautiful. Our only small disappointment re accommodation was that as our accommodation was up a stairs, we had no immediate access to an outdoor space (terrace, balcony). Overall, we were delighted with the experience and no have hesitation in recommending it.

The kitchen is very well-equipped and the owners have thought of everything guests might need to make their stay feel like a home-from-home. The courtyard is lovely. The village is friendly and quiet with a boulangerie, shop and bar as well as galleries, local wine to taste and buy and a weekly market and pizza van. The surrounding area is beautiful and has a fascinating history which makes day trips to pretty nearby villages and towns a joy.
