great house,and a lovely courtyard garden.my grandaughter loved the paddle pool,which was needed as the sun shone all week.this house ticked all the boxes for us for location to bars,restaurants,the park,and local attractions.but for me to open the doors from the square to to the peace and tranquility of the house was quite magical more

Management response:

Swimming pools not allowed by Batiments de France in Town of Richelieu! My family also just love the paddling pool-I put my blow up recliner in it and spend hours with my book! So glad you all enjoyed your holiday. more

Management response:
