If you're on the fence about booking Anna's apartment, DO IT! GO FOR IT! We stayed at Anna's medieval hamlet for two nights, and immediately upon arrival, we WISHED we booked her Airbnb for longer. It's a comfortable apartment where we quickly fell at home. The kitchen was equipped with pots and pans, as well as a french press. All rooms were spacious, including the bathroom. It was relaxing to just sit outside on the terrace and enjoy the view throughout the day. The worst part about staying here was having to leave. Anna was incredibly communicative and detailed from when we booked. She answered all of our questions very promptly, and kindly. Thank you so much for your hospitality, Anna! We already look forward to the next time we get to stay at your medieval hamlet.

Anna's place is perfect! It's so cozy and lovely, and Mont St. Jean is a sweet and beautiful small town. We loved every minute. Anna was attentive, helpful, and so kind, and her place is comfortable and relaxing. Also you can't beat the views!!

This is such a wonderful place on a hill with great views. Excellent wifi, and the king-size bed is very comfortable. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place. Excellent restaurant within walking distance in the village, but bring your foodstuffs (milk, coffee, etc) to the house as the nearest market is 16 kilometers away. Anna is a great host, and very helpful if you need anything or any information!
