We spent four nights at La Mousette and found the building comfortable and clean, Adrian and Sally Fox the owners were very welcoming and helpful. Highlights included the cycle paths around the area and swimming/canoing in the lake adjacent to the property. The house stands on tranquil grounds but there are local amenities nearby. Car essential.
