Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is very peaceful, relaxing and off the beaten track. Mark and Judy and wonderful hosts - nothing is too much trouble. We appreciated being able to use their bikes to explore the beautiful countryside and we also enjoyed relaxing by the pool. Mark arranged and took us to a local chateau for a wine tasting session which was informative and great fun. We would definitely stay here again and thoroughly recommend it.
