    Heerlijke week gehad, het weer speelde niet helemaal mee, maar héle mooie wandelingen in de buurt gemaakt, leuke stadjes bezocht, oa Monflanquin op 5 km afstand, zeer levendig stadje. De eigenaren waren uiterst vriendelijk en hadden goeie tips voor de omgeving. Het huis was meer dan prima, met heerlijke tuin en dito zwembad! Voor herhaling vatbaar! Ik miste alleen de horren in de slaapkamers, voor de rest helemaal top!

    Heel mooie en rustige gîte. Sober ingericht, maar alles is aanwezig. De vriendelijke eigenaars zijn vlakbij, maar zijn zeer discreet zodat volledige privacy gegarandeerd is.
