Our family stayed at the property in April 2010. We appreciated the warm welcome by the hosts who live on site and this is handy if you need any help or advice. The cottage was compact but had everything we needed to hand, it was spotlessly clean when we arrived and the welcome pack and robes were a definate plus. We would highly recommend this cottage to people with young families or teenagers, or just a couple on their own. We would definately stay here again if we were to return to France.
This was a lovely relaxing and luxury cottage ideal for quiet week after disney. It wasn't big to say the least but made up by the jacussi bath, luxury robes and toiletries!! A well enjoyed break.
