Comments from Owner Guestbook
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.' ' A great deal of thought has been given to furnishing the cottages and providing helpful information in many areas'

calme et convivialité
les jonquilles: petite maison confortable dans un village très calme, permettant l''accès a de nombreux châteaux et sites intéressants. Guy est très aimable et répondra volontiers aux questions touchant la région. il réside dans une maison en fond de cour, à la même adresse que la location. Malgré le coté "petit village" on notera la présence de toutes les commodités (superette, boulanger, petite pizzeria...) un petit moins tout de même: certains réseaux téléphoniques ne passent pas du tout. Mais peut être est-ce aussi cela, le calme des vacances.... bref, un point de chute très intéressant pour rayonner dans la région.

Solamente estuvimos 2 noches y debemos decir que fue una buena estadía. El señor Guy fue muy amable en todo sentido. La casa está bien equipada, sin televisión. Está muy cerca de los castillos más renombrados pero atención, hay que ir con GPS.
