I am so delighted to know that you all enjoyed your stay at La Poste so much and that the house lived up to your expectations. There are so many activities to try in the immediate area and I'm very glad that you were able to take full advantage of these. The Hotel Chatellenie in the village does offer good quality authentic French cuisine and it's good to know you liked it too. We would be absolutely delighted to welcome you all back next year - I'm sure there are plenty of activities that you didn't have time to try out.
