The holiday home is located in a lovely quiet village, with everything on hand. We took advantage of the bikes and there are plenty of walks close by. We particularly enjoyed relaxing and enjoying the views of the countryside from the terrace. There are plenty of sites to see and my great nephew loved the days we spent at Lake Rouffiac.
