Beautiful place

5 of 5
What an amazing area of France to visit and this house is situated in a perfect place to go exploring. We were looked after amazingly by the whole family - very thoughtful. Overall we felt privileged to be able to stay here - when we booked we had not realised the significance of this village and just where it was situated. Beautiful and so amazing in its history. The house it's self was finished off perfectly and very quaint - set on 3 floors it is simply but tastefully furnished and very comfortable. You have everything you need and the quality of the renovation is excellent. as meantioned in other reviews if you have restricted mobility you would possibly struggle with layout but also you would need to be mindful staying in this village as you do have hills and slopes to walk as cars cannot get to all areas. However if you are looking for some history, some peace ( you do get use to the church bell every hour! 😊) and some great hospitality then choose here because we loved it and as I said felt privileged to be based in such a special village with stunning views and at the foot of a impressive castle. And with delightful hosts. Fantastic....
