  • 5 of 5

Dans la maison, typique de la région, nous avons trouvé tout dont nous avions besoin pour un séjour de quelques jours: cuisine bien équipée, assez d'espace, jouets pour enfants. On se trouve au centre de la petite ville, à deux pas de la rivière et il y a un bar/resto tout près si l'on n'a pas envie de cuisiner. Propriétaire toujours disponible, région calme, mais avec beaucoup d'endroits à découvrir (château, rivière, villages, plages pas trop loin, l'Espagne à côté.
