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.

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.
