It had everything we needed and was very spacious and clean. We enjoyed wonderful walks and cycle rides along the 'voie verte' which was only a few metres from the property and the view of the river was impressive. We will be back!

The village is magnificent: the Picasso museum, the central street under plane trees … and the house is off-centered enough to be very quiet!! The house is clean, spacious and the very nice owners, the place to be recommended!!
