The gardens are private and totally relaxing."

La Poste des Gardes:

"The house is absolutely gorgeous, well equipped and very clean; it catered easily for six adults and a baby.
We will definitely return."

"Spectacular! A wonderful holiday meeting all my expectations and more. We achieved relaxtion - very rare for a mother of three!"
