Absolutely beautiful property and location- would not hesitate going back again
Loved the whole family. The home made croissant and pain au chocolat were that of a Master Chef. Listening to one of the daughter playing the piano was a delight. The homestead felt like living in a Palace and we enjoyed the animals. Many different outdoor areas to play, bask in the sun or relax on a nice wooden terrace under the trees.
