Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage and our dog loved the garden. Cottage was very tastefully decorated and the description of the cottage was accurate and very clean. Mike was really helpful and we would recommend this cottage. La Rochelle is beautiful and only half an hour from the cottage. We wished we had gone to see it earlier in the week as too much to see in one day. Vouvent is a beautiful village 20mins from the cottage, where we spent time walking, shopping and eating. It was a lovely week.
