This accommodation comes mainly in the form of apartments, townhouses and traditional French cottages, or gites.

Beautiful homely accommodation

5 of 5
From our enquiry to arrival we found Estelle to be very friendly and helpful. We were visiting France to spend the New Year with family and this was the perfect location. Couldn't have asked for better accomodation, catered for all our needs and had the most comfortable beds, definately a home from home and look forward to going back soon.
