Founders Cottage: beautiful, spacious and quality furnished. Pet friendly.
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

A great place to stay !

  • 5 of 5

A spotless, well-maintained cottage, decorated with taste. Quite a few places to visit around without driving for hours (walks, castles, gardens, typical villages). The owners are charming and very discrete but also very reactive (there was a growing wasp nest that we signaled to them. The problem was solved 2 hours later ! How efficient !)

It was a pleasure to stay at the Founders' cottage.

It even exceeded our expectations. Attractive and functional cottage, On site owners were most helpful and friendly with great warmth. Easy to find the cottage with good directions. We would return in a heart beat.
