12th Century Chapel
Beautiful 2 bed restored chapel, close to amenities. Everything on site for a relaxing weeks stay or house viewing trip.
Retired couple from Yorkshire, England, UK.
The Accommodation - a medieval chapel - was spacious, well furnished, and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, including lots of books, games, DVD player, washing machine, cooker, microwave, toaster, kettle and refrigerator. The host was very helpful and accommodating. A Very quiet and peaceful hamlet with beautiful walks around the area. We would definitely use it again if we are ever in the area.
ce jour très reposent confort moyen cafetière rétro pas de téléviseur chambre bas sous plafond du cou chaleur étouffante.
l’hôte très sympa pas du tout envahissent et disponible.
Mais il y a deux ventilateurs dans la chambre pour quand il fait chaud! Il faut bien sùr utiliser les appareils qui sont disponibles avant de se plaindre. Le site web informe tout invité qu’il n’y a pas de poste de télévision: c’est inutile de se plaindre après coup! Pour le reste, merci de vos remarques.
chapelle restaurée: bien
Attention à la photo d'appel: c'est la maison du propriétaire!
Le petit coin rangement ne peut pas être considéré comme une 2ème chambre.
Cuisine bien équipée. On apprécie les lits faits à l'arrivée. Linge suffisant.
