My wife and I have stayed in self catering properties, throughout France, for at least once a year for almost 30 years. This was one of the most pleasurable experiences and The Barn ranks as the highest quality, perhaps even the best, of all those properties. In a great location with an excellent pool and patio area and with a superb interior with top class furnishings and fitments. We look forward to staying again. Many thanks. - Sue & Gerald
