Excellent House and Very Helpful People

4 of 5
My wife and I stayed at the Hermitage for 1 week from June 30th 2017 with our dog Billy. The place was extremely well equipped and Claudie had left drinks tea coffee and much more for us. It was very comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Claudie and her husband were most helpful. Close to amenities including supermarkets, and shops for essentials such as bread. Conde is beautiful fantastic walks.

An absolutely wonderful experience. Superb apartment, wonderful breakfasts consisting of freshly squeezed orange juice, homemade jams to die for, lovely coffee and a daily mixture of brioches, croissants, pain au chocolat and crusty bread all warm from the oven. Very comfortable and we will be back!
