The patio area is... more

We had a wonderful stay at Riverside Cottage. The house was beautiful and welcoming with a great garden backing onto the river, idyllic. Barrou, is a very friendly, classic little French town with lots of things to do near by. It also has the best Paris-Brest I have ever tasted!!! more

Had a fun... more
