Beautiful, well-located and comfortable
We loved staying at Les Girolles. We spent a giddy arrival checking out all the corners of this beautiful home- the ancient stone walls, the gardens, the chickens, the magnificent views from the kitchen and living room windows, and of course, the pool! Practicalities: we found the property to be really well-located in terms of sightseeing; the beds are comfortable; the kitchen is well-stocked in terms of dishes and pots/pans; the pool is clean and there are plenty of pool toys/floaties; a washer & dryer are available; there is a large outdoor table for eating and a BBQ; cable TV offers international news and a few English channels as well as French, Dutch, German, etc. Unfortunately, our stay coincided with a major heat wave (unusual for early June)- and the upstairs was uncomfortable without fans, however, the bedrooms downstairs stayed cool. Karin was a lovely host and her dogs were very friendly and well trained. It’s really an enchanting experience to stay in such a historical property (the foundations are 13th century!), and yet have all the amenities, as well as great hosts. Highly recommended.
