Etienne is a fabulous host and we enjoyed out stay in this beautiful house very much. The breakfast, on the balcony, over looking the gorgeous garden, was lovely. We would love to come again and stay longer.

We really liked Cypress Cottage - it's a lovely, traditional small guesthouse. Our room was large with comfy beds. Our host was really helpful about places to go and also to eat. There are good restaurants very close to the property. Breakfast was good and eaten on a lovely outside terrace overlooking the pretty front garden.

Ideally situated near to restaurants and the museum. Our room was spacious, nicely furnished and very clean. We had access to a shared balcony overlooking the pool area. The house and gardens are special and full of history. Breakfast was very nicely presented on the veranda. Staff were helpful and courteous. The owner was away for most of our stay...

I arrived on a scorching day to a warm welcome and comfortable cool suite. Pool and surrounds were beautiful. Restful night in the quiet locale was followed by excellent breakfast options and entertaining chat with host and French visitors. Will definitely visit again.

We booked in via the extremely helpful Information office in town This is charming old house, delightfully quirky with some lovely gardens right in the town. We had two rooms, each different but comfortable and homely. The owner was both knowledgeable and helpful, all in all a good place to stay.

The breakfast table was set beautifully. The only disappointment...

Quaint cottage style accommodation, the room we stayed in was furnished in a style to suit what is a very old building. If you want modern , this is not for you, if on the other hand, you want something with character this is ideal. There is a small but nice pool in the garden. Breakfast was served on a...
