A little place in paradise!

5 of 5
The property lived up to all our expectations. It was very well equipped, had everything we needed and we felt very much at home. Our hosts were very warm and friendly and we coped well even though my French was a bit rusty. They were there when we needed advice but never intruded. There were good up to date guide books and leaflets which we were able to read and they gave us some good ideas of where to visit.
