Marie is straight out of a romantic French novel and so is the accomodation. Beautiful old, refurbished, large rooms right in the centre of it all. Was totally family friendly and she was very sweet even when we broke the soap dish!! No where to cook so ask for the table d'hote (dinner) which was amazing and perfect combo of... More
