Easy 10 minute walk to town & just a few minutes walk to the supermarket. The house has eveything you need for a very enjoyable stay. Philippe the owner is very helpful & knowledgeable about the area too

The spot was the perfect location to explore the gorge, walking or rafting. The house itself was clean spacious and had a lovely new kitchen. The host was welcoming and easy to contact when making arrival arrangements. The views from the terrace were the amazing and it was a great place to relax.
