We received a warm welcome from Martine and Francois who took time to show us the house and explain the facilities. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. The rear decking area is private and ideal for dining outside. Les Rousses is about 5 kilometres away and has all the shops and restaurants necessary for a self catering holiday. We enjoyed several trips around the area as well as walking in the more immediate environment. Marine and Francois were attentive but not intrusive. Fortunately we did not have to call on them for assistance but knew they were on hand if needed.

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
