Stunning location

5 of 5
We spent a wonderful 2 weeks here. The garden and pool area are just breathtaking. It was a joy waking up every morning and looking outside. The house has a lot of character, is very comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and, because of the thickness of the walls, very cool. When we weren't enjoying the garden we spent our time walking in the local area. The tourist office has a very good book containing well-signposted walks. We also love french food and were not disappointed by the the local area. We would definitely go back.
