"Hidden gem in idyllic setting"

Attempt number 2 to write this.

We stumbled upon this little gem of a cottage by accident when looking for a base near Varaignes. The cottage is lovely, tastefully decorated and very inviting. The views from the front go on forever across one of the most picturesque parts of France, if not the world. Easy access to lakes, cafes, restaurants and an endless list of events and activities. Curl up by the fireplace and dream the worlds troubles away. Lynda and Bobby, the owners, couldn't be any nicer. They were extremely kind and always willing to help when asked. All this with our every intruding. I can't recommend this cottage highly enough. If you're lucky, you might even meet Wilber, AKA Soft Kitty.
