The best location in the village.

5 of 5
Excellent, quality accommodation with outstanding views of the village and a super location. The garden was a bonus. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Highly recommended.

Lovely setting and so quiet

4 of 5
Having a swimming pool available was sheer luxury. Owner, Christine gave us a warm welcome, always ready to help out if needed, speaks a little English so we got by with our little French. The accommodation is very well equipped and all you need for a comfortable stay. The seating available in various parts of the garden are superb. At the bottom of the garden is a dried up river bed which is lovely to walk along and next to it is a running river. We love bird watching and got such a lovely surprise seeing a Night Jar which are rare to see. They come out like the Bats do as it goes dark and hunt for insects. Seeing that just made our holiday there. The biggest draw back is no Wfi which is needed by most on holiday, and if this was to be installed we would go back again for another holiday.
