I spent 4 days with family and the place was amazing... Starting with the great mood of Mike and Virginie, going through the nice room with different environments (kitchen, living and suite) up to the farm-like atmosphere, where kids enjoyed the chicks and dogs!!! I highly recommend it for relaxing.... And you still have wi-fi to contact friends!! more

Management response:

Thanks guys, hope to see you both again soon. more
