01 Nov 2011
I enjoyed every aspect of my stay at this quaint French house. The house was very clean and tidy and nicely decorated and had ample space for myself and three friends. I loved the garden in particular which was well kept and private and was a lovely place to have breakfast in the sunshine.
The town itself is pretty and historic and we spent some lovely afternoons sitting in cafes, wandering around the town enjoying its historic architecture and eating in the great restaurants during the evening.
The town is also located very close to a wealth of chateau and vineyards and not far from the airport.
I would definitely go back and I look forward to my next visit.
Thanks for your review - so glad you enjoyed your stay.
