My husband & I are originally from Florida. We moved to France almost 7 years ago, and are loving every minute of it. We are new to Airbnb as of July 2013, but not new to travel sites all over the world. We have a 5 star ranking, and all our guests agree we are the best of the best! I decided to join Airbnb due to a guests request, and as you will see, I am all about making my guests happy, down to the smallest things. This is our 7th season renting Les Hirondelles as a self catering property. We are usually fully booked by the end of each season, so keep an eye on my calendar, I update it daily. We have been very fortunate to have many returning guests year after year, and guests that recommend us to their family, friends, and co-workers which is the highest complement someone can give us. We love inviting people into our home, and helping them experience the sights and sounds of this beautiful and amazing region. Come join us, and enjoy France!!
