"Friendly,cosy and unique"
"We loved the quirkiness and artistic features. The French village was lovely but just a bit too narrow and smokey for the dinner on the Saturday evening. We did not like the first accommodation room that we looked at in the French Village - with the tin bath shower. We chose the Dolls House which wa..."more
