Very welcoming, very comfortable and with all the amenities necessary for our stay
On arrival we were welcomed by Brigitta and Tim and shown the property, it was just lovely, huge garden, in which the kids immediately ran riot, burning of energy after a car journey of 7hrs! The gite was perfect for us, spacious and comfortable. Brigitta has collected a bundle of information on the local area, listing local event's, markets and places of interest, which we found very useful. Throughout our stay'La Mirabelle proved a very nice place to be, a garden big enough to spread out in, for the kids to enjoy, with some welcoming natural shade when the Sun got a little hot. Tim and Brigitta were on hand if we needed anything, from French translation to directions to local markets. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would certainly recommend, 'La Mirabelle'
Nous avons séjournés chez Brigitta et son mari dans leur "cottage anglais". Un accueil très sympathique et chaleureux.
La maison est très agréable et le jardin vraiment bucolique.
Tout est réuni pour un séjour confortable et relaxant.
La région renferme également beaucoup de belles surprises culturelles.
En conclusion, une adresse à recommander vivement.
Merci encore à Brigitta et son mari.
Merci pour vos aimables paroles.
Nous sommes heureux que vous ayez passé un bon weekend ensemble à la mirabelle.
Nous vous avons trouvé tout le monde très sympathique et superbe hôtes.
Merci encore et nous espérons, à bientôt.
