                                              The Hermitage accommodation

                                              5 of 5
                                              The accommodation was clean and comfortable. The lounge/dinette was spacious and there was lots of storage space in the bathroom. It was very convenient for walking and cycling round the beautiful Lake d'Escault and we were able to store our bikes out of sight in a shed. The host was very friendly and helpful.

                                              Spotlessly clean apartment. Extremely friendly.

                                              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!
