Havre de paix... le bonheur existe !

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer 2 nuits dans la charmante et somptueuse maison de Caroline, à 12 collègues/amis, pour un weekend de détente et de partage. C'est vraiment ce qu'inspire cette sublime demeure. 3 niveaux et une très belle terrasse véritablement bien agencés, nous n'avons jamais été à l'étroit. La décoration est magnifique et faite avec gout, ce mélange d'ancien et de modernité fonctionne à merveille. La terrasse est très agréable, nous y avons partagé un barbecue le soir et un brunch le dimanche midi... tellement convivial. 6 chambres très spacieuses dont 2 avec salles de bain privatives. Tous les équipements sont au Top, il ne manque rien, jusqu'à l'enceinte GENEVA dans le salon (un must du son Suisse)... L'emplacement premium sur la place de la légendaire église d'Ars en Ré et vue imprenable sur son clocher mythique. L'accueil très convivial de Patricia que je remercie vivement pour sa gentillesse et ses bons conseils. Nous serions très heureux de revenir passer quelques jours dans ce havre de paix. Caroline vous avez une maison avec une âme, une histoire et une atmosphère indéniables... il fait bon vivre chez vous... Merci pour ce moment.
