Message from the Driesssler family, August 2013:Dear Christine,
Ffinally we are back in Germany , the bags are unpacked and the normal course of life starts again.
We really want to thank you so much for your hospitality – we had such a great vacation at La Clergerie and the surroundings.
The children miss you, the beautiful house, the big garden and of course your dogs – and they ask me every time if we can go back to France again.
Many thanks for all your help and assistance and all the best to you."
Linda, Luisa, Renate & Mario
