cadre superbe propriétaires adorables

  • 5 of 5

Tout était parfait le lieu, l'ambiance, les propriétaires. Un endroit vraiment superbe où l'on peut enfin prendre le temps de respirer. Les gîtes sont très confortables, pleins de caractères et la déco est parfaite. L'accueil des propriétaires a été très chaleureux et amical à la fin du week end on avait du mal à partir car on se sentait comme chez soi. A recommander pour un week end ou pour les vacances endroit vraiment unique. Nous y reviendrons avec grand plaisir.
