It was very clean and was equipped with everything we needed. The views from the property are stunning. There is plenty of space to park - you will need a vehicle as the nearest town is several miles away. This makes the cottage perfect if you want a holiday away from it all! The owners Franck and Agnes are friendly and helpful - they live next door but were not intrusive and respected our privacy. We highly recommend a stay at this cottage and hope to return in the future.
