Situated a short stroll from medieval ‘Pont de la Pierre’ bridge over the river Vincou, where you will find riverside parkland ideal for strolls and picnics, the cottage sits in the shadow of the thirteenth century church of Notre Dame. Take a short walk up the hill beyond the church and you will find the local supermarket and other shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, the library and the tourist information office. There are also several large supermarkets within a five-minute drive which can supply anything else you might require for your stay. A variety of countryside walks are available from the front door, and many others are just a short drive away in the Monts de Blond.

Fantastically placed close to the river with amazing views
Many thanks for your review James. Glad to hear that you had everything you needed for a comfortable stay.
A snug cottage
We all enjoyed staying in the cottage. It was well equipped with everything we needed and the beds were particularly comfortable. It was difficult to find it when we arrived and although we asked several people living nearby they didn't seem to know its whereabouts until we found someone who was able to lead us to it. It is in what looks like a little side road. Once we had found it and had settled in we enjoyed the whole week and were sorry to have to leave. For some reason we couldn't use the wi fi - we tried several times but without success.
We're glad you enjoyed your stay in our cottage despite the difficulty in finding it (there are detailed directions on the website which you may not have seen). Not sure why you had difficulty accessing the internet, but now you have brought it to our attention we will check it out before our next guests arrive.
Property beautifully positioned by river. A bit of a pull to town centre butnot too hard- and we are both in our 70;s! Cottage well equipped and comfortable. Good value.
Many thanks for your kind review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in the cottage and hope to see you again sometime in the future.
Beautifully decorated situated in a gorgeous location. Absolutely loved it.

Charming with so much attention to detail
This cottage is beautiful. It has everything you need and then some. A traditional cottage with many original features yet with all mod cons. Beds are comfortable, kitchen is very well equipped and spotlessly clean. A pleasure from start to finish
