Beautiful house in a beautiful area.

5 of 5
The house was incredibly comfortable with everything we needed and more. Having a heated pool was a real treat and meant we were able to use it much later into the evening. We hope to return one day & enjoy another glass wine overlooking the mountains. Thank you Florence & family for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Wonderful location for a really quiet "away from it all" stay.

5 of 5
The location and house are perfect if you want a quiet break away from it all and don't mind intermittent internet. The house is perfect for 2 once you get the hang of the open tread steep staircase. Franck and Agnes are charming hosts and made us welcome. The views are fantastic and it was a treat to look at them whilst in the pool.
