"We really enjoyed our stay and like La Maison Rose"

We know the Dourbie Valley and surrounding area very well. We returned to the area in June and stayed in Cantobre. Although the cottage we rented was adequate it had a lot of limitations. We decided to return this September and decided to stay in Nant. We found booking La Maison Rose very easy and the owners were very helpful. The house itself was just what we wanted. It was clean light and comfortable. The kitchen was one of the best equipped kitchens we have had in holiday accommodation. Lots of useful guides and local information were supplied. Agnes the agent who met us and checked the house before we left was very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Had a brilliant holiday and would love to return again with the rest of our family. I would recommendation this house to anyone and of course the area which is one of the nicest parts of France.
