You will not tire of looking at the hills and valleys that stretch on for miles. There are plenty of other highlights to this place: the house is very well kitted out (only downsides: narrow staircase down to the bottom room so not ideal for small children), the pool is wonderful (not heated) and well gated off, the agent, Adrien, is very knowledgeable about the area and kind (he brought us croissants the day we left early and went out of his way to organise a canoeing trip for our small children with an English speaking guide). Merci a la famille Chaurand pour l'acceuil chaleureux. A bientot j'espere.

It is a fabulous area to explore with guidance from the hosts. The property had everything needed for a comfortable stay including delicious home made confiture. We found activities locally to occupy our teenage son including the local pool, canoeing and a high ropes centre.
