A wonderful location overlooking the bustling Place Carnot, and only a short walk from the beautiful medieval town, the canal and the river. Well equipped, and just so comfortable. We spent many evenings (even in October!) sitting by the open windows drinking in the atmosphere, and of course, some of the local wine! Friendly and helpful owners who could not do enough to help, as well as an efficient and welcoming local contact. Everything you could need, from banks to restaurants are just a stone's throw away. I'm actually reluctant to post this review, as I wish I could keep this apartment for myself!
