Just a note for our future guests regarding the wifi. Wifi is always an issue in rural France however as we explained to our guests I had made an error and had accidentally placed our router behind a 2 foot thick wall!! Once I understood my error I immediately put it in the correct place and I believe that the connection was greatly improved! Proof of which was that we had a family of 6 in the following week 3 of whom were teenagers and there didn't seem to be a problem!
We do provide a huge amount of leaflets for all the attractions in the area and a Lonely Planet Guide to France and there is of course French TV available ideal for local weather.
