Thank you to Martine and Francois for their warm welcome (our kids loved the chocolate cake in particular) and for thinking of everything! Un grand merci pour un accueil sympa et une maison exceptionnelle. Mark & Natasha

Host was welcoming , very helpful and friendly, Simply with her, you will feel at home. There, we enjoyed charming nature, clear sky. Great place to relax and get away from the bustle of everyday life. Linen was very clean, crisp and white and amazing towels. Wifi was a good speed and fresh flowers tea, coffee and breakfast was provided in the room. We had booked it for one night only and wished we could have been there longer. There were so many personal touches that made this visit an experience to remember. Definitely going back to this enchanted place. Special appreciation for madam NICOLE ZORN. Best regards N'daa
