We had a fantastic stay in Coustouge.It was very relaxing and we really didn't want to leave at the end of the two weeks! We will definitely consider going back there in years to come! Thanks for all of your communications and for making it so easy for us to book and to really enjoy a lovely vacation. Ken Roberston July 09



We've just arrived back from a lovely week in Coustouge. Things went very well; weather, village, excursions and what not. We were very happy with the house and the whole package.We would certainly think about visiting again and would recommend it to friends. Donal Owens June 09



We had a fabulous time at the villa and surrounding area.

We were totally amazed at the scenery and how very rural the village was.The house was very well equiped & having such a large pool was terrific. Again we did have a great holiday and thank you. Caroline Drever July 09
