There is a magic about this place. One showers in hot water dervived from sunshine. Sleeps on marshmallows. If required...Prepares one's own food in a sun-filled, spotless and well equipped kitchen/ diner. Chills on a sun-drenched terrace, overlooking the spectacular river Vienne. Awakes to the gentle peal of the church bell to be lured by the smell of wonderful morning bread across the old bridge or in the other direction to hot quiche with goat cheese. Is effortlessly stimulated by the social breakfast with lengthy discussions on whatever arises out of multiple cups of tea or coffee and a variety of delicious petit-dejeuner foods. After our very disappointing gite experience last summer this was a wonderful contrast.
Nothing is too much trouble for Mary and Nick.
