As reported by a couple last year: ' Congratulations to the local council for an exceptional presentation of the village and its local artists, famous people. The area, as a whole, needs no extra accolade.' 'We could not have wished for a more helpful and friendly host. He made us feel very welcome-more like friends than guests. Thank you for a memorable two weeks'. ' We had a restful and very enjoyable holiday' 'Your extensive library is like a well-documented local Tourist Office' 'Your gite was perfect for our needs in all respects. Thank you for your hospitality and kindness and compliment on the high standard of your gîtes. We have many good memories'. 'The village is well positioned as a base for tours in all directions.'
