It had everything we needed and was very spacious and clean. We enjoyed wonderful walks and cycle rides along the 'voie verte' which was only a few metres from the property and the view of the river was impressive. We will be back!

We walked in the mountains, skied and went to the beach, enjoying wonderful sunshine and great snow. Jujols is a very special village.
