Elle est tellement spacieuse que tout le monde peut avoir son intimité et les pièces de vie sont suffisamment grandes pour partager les bons moments tous ensemble. A noter que la maison est plus sympa en vrai qu'en photos, ce qui est assez rare pour le souligner. Les enfants étaient également ravis avec les prestations proposées (Piscine, Tennis de table, baby-foot...). Bref, nous y retournerions avec plaisir!

The hosts were helpful and friendly even though my French is not very good. It was not too far to travel for provisions. I would have liked to have more control over the heating as sometimes we were quite cold and seemed to have no way to make it come on. The location was very beautiful - we didn't really need to go exploring- but of course we did! Please pass on our appreciation to our hosts.
