The house is attractively furnished, roomy and well equipped for around 6 people. However, because of the distribution of space, there is only one bedroom - which is particularly spacious and attractive - and it is hard to see where further people might sleep. It is a few miles from the nearest shops/activities so not for those who need a lot of distractions! It was ideal for what we needed - a get away from it all R & R. The owner lives on the site and was pleasant and helpful without being intrusive.

Well equipped, comfortably furnished and in superb location this apartment is one of the best we have stayed in in France (or England!). Lovely to have a good sized shower with brilliant water pressure - all too often it's a let down but this one certainly wasn't. Our hosts, Marianne and Peter were both welcoming, very helpful and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. We were pointed in the direction of places to go, things to do, and good places to eat - very important as we like good food - and certainly were not disappointed by some of the restaurants we visited. We explored the local area on foot, by car and by borrowing the bicycles provided for guests to use. We would thoroughly recommend this apartment to anyone - for just a long weekend or a two week stay - it was really good. A big thank you to Marianne and Peter for welcoming us and providing such a good base for our holiday. Best wishes Keith & Jayne.
