Despite there not being many photos of the house before our stay I was confident that Shelly's description would not let us down and I was right. Photos would not do it justice, it has to be seen to be believed. It is described in the literature as a home from home and it was always a pleasure to come back to. Shelley has thought very carefully about what guests would like/need and there are many little extras that made our time there very comfortable. It is in a central location for everything, the station, the canal and The Cite but was still quiet at night. The tourist office is excellent and would also recommend the market on Saturday morning and the bike hire. Thank you Shelley and Simon, and also Fiona who presents the house beautifully.

Set in a typically French village. Wendy and Martin were very helpful, and gave us some good advice on where to visit. Great house for a family retreat after a day at the beach or sightseeing. Would recommend to anyone.
