Absolutely Fabulous!

5 on July 28, 2012

Having just stayed at La Vallee I can truly recommend it. Peter and val could not have been more helpful. The bedrooms are much larger than one would have expected and with good sized en suite bathrooms. The breakfast is a feast with home baked bread and croissants. The smell of fresh bread fills the air in the mornings and with the sun shining, one could not have been happier! Dinner was a treat also. Val also had a number of french guests who seemed just as happy as us and val was able to talk with them no problem! Go on - give La vallee a try - I don't think you will be disappointed
