Interaction with Guests
I come to welcome my guests at their arrival. I usually then ask them their preferences but I am always available. I can also come back anytime for special request or anything else, I live 10 minutes away...
It's a quiet street, a little outside the village (about 5 min by car) perfect for families and couples. They are close to many shops and all, but have the quietness of the surrounding. Also, the house is some distance from the street, therefore safe for children.
Driving is the easiest option. You could also fly in since we have an airport. However, it would be adviced to rent a car to get around.

Isandre was really nice and accommodating for us, as we had a tight and somewhat odd schedule. She definitely made our stay easier.
The house itself was really nice, in a beautiful setting. It definitely lives up to the "Maison de Campagne" designation. Everything we needed was there, all appliances, kitchen with all kinds of utensils, wifi, etc. If you're traveling with multiple people or a family, I'd definitely recommend staying here as opposed to the somewhat overpriced and underwhelming motels in the area.
