We only came for a long weekend but wish we could have stayed longer. Rustic, rural French charm at its best. Perfect setting as a base for exploring all the area has to offer. We all loved the grounds especially the children. Very pretty. The help from Sarah when booking and leading up to our stay was excellent and she was always prompt with responses to emails etc, while Christine on site was the perfect balance of on hand but not intrusive. We will definitely be back and for longer next time. Thank you. And please pass on thanks to the owner Catherine too as up keep of a place like she has here much be never ending. A little gem.
