"Ticked all of boxes"
From the moment we arrived we knew we'd made the right choice. We were greeted with a warm welcome. The rooms were immaculate and spacious. Our hosts were very knowledgeable of the local area. Great restaurants, bars, art galleries and local markets for us adults within a stones throw. For our teenage daughters an abundance of river side beaches and lifeguarded lakes (free canoeing!) with cafes. A short drive took us to villages and towns steeped in history and impressive architecture together with interesting shopping to keep the teenagers entertained! We never did find time to sample the wines in the local chateau's....so we'll definitely be returning :-)
