A few practical points; This property is pet friendly on arrangement, please confirm any four-legged friends on booking. It is also important to stress that this property is very old so the odd cobweb may be found, there are exposed stone walls which do create more dust than usual, in points the floors are uneven. Finally due to the size of Les Figues a fuel surcharge is required for bookings November - April inclusive, this is requested on booking, you may find this house to be a little chilly during the colder months therefore would recommend that you purchase wood for your stay, this can be bought from most supermarkets and brico stores.

We went to the night market and loved the village shop and La Part des Anges restaurant. Most of all though we loved just strolling round the fairy tale village and sitting by the river in the evening
