The Apartment was just as described and was clean and well appointed. Laurent was the perfect host with nothing to much trouble, he advised regarding trips and connections and local restaurants, and they were all accurate and informative. All our family found the location perfect for the City and Old city and the local bakery was great. A fantastic holiday and Apartment and thank you again, we will be back. 10/10 Regards, Rob

We also visited places recommended by Yumi and Eric, some we drove. Home from home with an extra touch of luxury, we ate out and also enjoyed restful evening home. The choice was ours as we could eat out in restaurants close by or pop out to local shop to get what we needed. A wonderful stay, thank you to you both. Pascale and family
