Un coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5

Je recommande ! !!

  • 5 of 5

Ce gîte a vraiment beaucoup d'atouts! Situé dans un endroit magnifique, une région intéressante, et proche du village hypersympa de Buis-les-Baronnies où on trouve tout : magasins, restaurants et surtout une ambiance chaleureuse. Le gîte est très propre, bien entretenu, le cadre est splendide, il y a une très belle piscine! Vous serez accueillis chaleureusement par le propriétaire, un homme

discret mais toujours à votre disposition. Si besoin est il vous donnera de bons conseils concernant les sites intéressants dans la région. En plus, les toutous sont les très bien venus car il adore les chiens (gentils!😁?) Mon mari et moi, nous y retournerons l'année prochaine ! !

Je traduis pour les néerlandophones :

Voor de Nederlandssprekenden even een vertaling :

Deze gîte beschikt echt over heel veel troeven : gelegen in een prachtige omgeving, een interessante streek en op loopafstand van het supersympatieke stadje Buis-les-Baronnies waar je alles vindt : winkels, restaurantjes maar vooral een heel warme, hartelijke sfeer!

De gîte is zeer netjes en goed onderhouden, het kader is prachtig, er is een mooi zwembad. Je zult er hartelijk onthaald worden door de eigenaar, een discreet man die toch ter beschikking is en bereid is interessante tips te geven wat het verkennen van de streek betreft. En (lieve😁?!) hondjes zijn welkom! De eigenaar is immers dol op honden.

Mijn echtgenoot en ik keren in elk geval volgend jaar terug!!
