A well presented and equipped home that matches the owner's description. We used the property as a base for days out in a 50 mile or so radius. Its a good place to come back to and use for your main meal of the day. The village has a friendly bar as well as butcher, baker and tabac.
The property could sleep 6 but this would feel cramped for more than a few days. I'd say if your're staying for a week or more its an ideal property for two couples or a family with school age children - as the owner describes its unsuitable for younger kids.
The view from the terrace is stunning and every night we ignored the TV and sat out there till late drinking the local wine.
If you want a pool and or a nightlife this is not for you. If you want well equipped, well presented in an authentic community I have no hesitation in recommending this property

I've just returned from Puimisson and my four night stay at Maison De La Tour. This was a last minute break designed to give me some rest and relaxation before starting a new job. Sally's flexibility at what is, of course, not low season by any reckoning was very welcome.
I expected it to be good based on the advert, but what I got was exceptional. Great location (a lovely village and great local wines), a wonderful apartment, almost uniquely designed, an exceptionally well equipped kitchen, and of course the breathtaking views.
I left with a number of Pete and Sally's business cards, and will be handing them out to a number of friends (I have already sent a number of photos). My only regret is that, having checked the calendar, there is now no further availability for another visit until mid November.
I will be back!
