set in a green, airy part of the city, with a lovely garden, the late 19th century house exudes calm, care, friendliness. Everything is beautifully done, down to the last detail: the house itself, the rooms, and, starting the day, the breakfast: fresh, luxurious, delightful in taste and sight. The hosts and their staff are friendly and attentive in the...

Very comfortable stay. Yves and Valerie were superb, so helpful, so friendly, a home from home. Nice garden and patio to enjoy the fresh air. Only problem, I was bitten by mosquitoes in my bedroom each night!
