Guestbook comments from the owner

Everyone who has stayed at La Basserie appreciated the peace and quiet of this unspoiled countryside, and relaxed pace of life. Also the beautiful beaches unspoilt countryside.

Remember that the house was built in 1784, so it has slate tiles on some of the floor, carpets in the bedrooms, but it is cool in the summer.
