The best bit was its location, close to the metro, freeway accesses, supermarkets, etc. We enjoyed our 1 week stay immensely. definitely would love to come back. The only one thing would help greatly for non-French speakers would be to have English translated pages available in the orientation book. Thank you for the lovely place.
