Joli maison dans un joli village

  • 5 of 5

Nous etions positivement surprises de notre maison de vacances - "en nature", elle est encore plus belle que sur les photos! Bien equipée, bien calme, plein de charme - le parfait endroit pour passer des jours rélaxantes. Et au surplus: bien proche à toutes les hotspots de la Cote d'Azur. Nous nous réjouissons à la prochaine visite...
