  • Absolutely beautiful property with magnificent views! Pictures don't do it justice!
    4 of 5

    This house is beautiful and maintained immaculately. You can tell the owners take great pride in their home. There are two guest rooms on the property and you will essentially be staying in a basement-type floor the way the house is designed. The rooms were clean and nice with amenities such as shampoo/soap/conditioner/toilet paper/flip flops, etc. Breakfast was included and it was delicious, consisting of traditional french breakfast usually Michel's home-made bread and baked goods, along with marmalade, butter, yogurt, and American style coffee. If you're a low key couple looking for a relaxing place to stay, I would recommend this place; however, there are some things I'd like to note. Catherine doesn't speak any English if you're like us and speak very basic French, that may be a problem. Michel understands some English but prefers French. Communication was a bit difficult with the language barrier but it was manageable so long as you don't need anything complicated. There are a lot of rules here as you'll be sharing the home with the owners, a fact we were unaware of until we arrived on the premises. We felt it was a bit strict and even though we were a party of four and had additional friends in the area for a wedding, felt uncomfortable just relaxing together at the house. We aren't rowdy people, but the rules of the house made us feel like we were staying with our parents or something. Catherine and Michel are very nice people even if they are a bit strict. So if you don't mind a couple of rules (most pretty reasonable), then this place would be great. The listing also says there is AC: be aware that the house has geothermal AC which is not like real AC at all. No fans were provided and while it can get cool during the nights, there is no moving air in the room and can get uncomfortable. The wifi was also very spotty.
