Lovely little cottage, clean, comfortable with everything you need, Matilde even put milk, butter and cake in the fridge for us. The cottage is at the bottom of the owners lovely garden with places to sit outside. The owners were lovely, very helpful but mindful to not intrude. We walked into the French quarter most days which took around 25mins...
