Très beau séjour dans un cadre magnifique

  • 4 of 5

C'est une très belle maison, aménagées avec goût et sobriété, nous y avons passés un très beau séjour.

Elle est très calme et reste très fraiche en été !

L'accueil est chaleureux.

La région est magnifique et il y a de très belle promenade à faire. Nous n'avons pu en pratiquer que 2 car nous avons une petite fille de 3 ans.
