Wonderful family property with great views and pool

4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely villa. The villa is in a town, so we felt closely connected but was quiet and with fantastic views over the countryside. There was music and food in the square each Friday and a cycle race. Wonderful pool, great for young families.

Lovely spacious property with idyllic views and garden

4 of 5
I stayed at this property for the week of my Wedding with family and friends. The property exceeded expectations and the online photos do not do it justice. It is an deal space, with lovely sized rooms, the garden and views topped our stay. The owners Eric and Dominique could not have been more accommodating and were very helpful and friendly. We all really had the best time staying here, and you and your property made a special occasion even more memorable.
