We felt very comfortable just lounging around in the bungalow in inclement weather.There is the use of a large garden (which our elderly dog Poppy enjoyed) and a barbeque. M. Vallett was extremely pleasant and helpful as was his wife (but note that he speaks no English).The village is situated only 5 minutes drive from the delightful town of St Valery Sur Somme. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our week and can thoroughly recommend it.
