Owner's Response: Bonjour Mauro,Isabel,Enzo et Lola. Nous ne pouvions qu'être gentils avec vous quatre qui l'étiez et au-delà. Et si nous pouvons contribuer à ce que nos hôtes découvrent le Pays Basque hors des clichés trop souvent véhiculés, nous sommes heureux. Merci encore pour les joies que votre séjour nous nous a procurées. Bonne reprise scolaire pour les enfants et bonne continuation à tous.
