"Lovely village and apartment in beautiful garden setting."

The apartment was very much as it appeared on the internet, was spacious, clean and adequately furnished. The kitchen was well equipped with an almost new electric oven and hotplates, a small dish… More

Dear Steve and Jenny, thanks for your lovey presence!
I'm sorry for the suggestion of the electricity: it's the society that gave me the 3 stars qualification that asked me to indicate all the energetic economy you can do for the environment. It's an important political engagement in France. Any case, it's only a suggestion, like you wrote, not an obbligation!
For the heating don't worry! I'm always there for turn it on if necessary and the apartment is warm in few minutes…
Thanks for all!
The best to you,

it has been a really great emotion for us too to meet you… wait for the evening to share the day's experiences… talk about politics, animals, countries, history, peoples, origins… all that makes just 'family'…
It's such a great satisfaction to know that my loved guests found themselves here like at home and leave for home with a magical souvenir of the moments spent here!
