"C'etait un sejour des plus agreables.....le chalet et les liseux [ont] ete si magnifiques. C'est un retour a la nature des plus soins." RA, Quebec, Canada." (Translation) "This was a most agreeable stay....the house and the location were so magnificent. They've taken a lot of care to provide such a return to nature."
