It was perfect for us . Beautifully restored, elegant apartment but also comfortable and well equippped. M et Mme Radureau Senior were very helpful with organising key hand over to our daughter . The apartment is also very central but tucked away in quiet spot . I don't think we have ever stayed in a city where we have had this perfect combination . We had a wonderful weekend and even the sun shone . Merci beaucoup!
