The apartment has lovely views over the harbour and is extremely well equipped, everything has been thought of. To top it all the weather was fantastic.

Claude and Pascale extremely helpful, as always. We love staying at "le Four a Pain", a smartly renovated stone cottage which stays cool in the hottest of weather. Small but quite practical for self-catering. Ten out of ten.
