The apartment is very well equipped with 3 balconies and is well maintained. Set on the outskirts of a small village with everything you need but not far from Evian for a great deal more! Merril has been most helpful throughout the booking process and provided lots of helpful information prior to our trip. Hope to return in a different season, so that we can see all that this pretty area has to offer. Much to recommend it.
