This was my fourth stay at la grange and I just loved it.
It is an old barn converted into a nice apartment with all amenities and a charming atmosphere.
It is wonderfully situated on the edge of a hamlet with a river and a forest just behind.
It is perfectly quiet .
Martyn and Jenny always make sure you have everything you need for a lovely holiday and provide valuable local information (as well as wildlife courses if you are interested.)
