GUEST COMMENTS
Dear Hazel, dear David,
again, thank you very much for our "chill-out" in France. Your property is very very nice, (especially the Lodgehouse is lovely). I miss that French region and style already. Especially the guy from the "boulangerie". He has really the best croissants and chocolatines.  See you soon!     Silke & Martin Wiese

Many thanks again for your wonderful hospitality and the great accommodation. We had a fantastic time and would recommend you to anyone both in terms of facilities and hospitality but also location with reasonable drives to the coast and to both puy de fou and to futuroscope, all of which we thought were fantastic.
