Peaceful haven

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped spacious and clean. Fabulous property. Very private. Holiday every year in different areas of France. This is the first place we would consider returning to. Very quiet roads, perfect for walking and cycling. Restaurant within 10 minutes walk. Large supermarkets within 10 minutes drive. Swimming pool perfect. Didn't want to leave.
