What previous visitors have said about our house: ‘In addition to a tasteful renovation, this large house allows moments of conviviality (8 around the meal table without any problem, inside or outside) and moments of isolation for reading ... or napping! There is room for everyone. The pool is also welcome to cool off.

Very clean house on our arrival and everything is there: linen, towels, dishes.

We highly recommend this house.’. Evelyn D
