La experiencia con John y Libby ha sido fantástica. Buenísimos anfitriones, gente excepcional, trato muy personal. Hemos pasado muy buenos momentos con ellos. Desde el primer día te hace sentir como si tú fueras parte de su familia. Repetiríamos sin dudarlo.
Gracias por todo!! Por cierto, nos regalaron dos plantas para que lleváramos una semilla de ellos con nosotros. Os queremos.

Our stay with John and Libby was perfect. You couldn't wish to meet a nicer couple, so friendly and helpful it was truly a memorable experience. If you are a dog lover you will fall in love with Edith and Margaux, they are the most gentle, adorable and loving dogs we have ever encountered. John and Libby's house is beautifully restored in a quiet French village, perfect for a relaxing stay. In a great location for seeing the sights of the Normandy Peninsula and landing beaches. We have awarded John and Libby the maximum of 5 hearts however if we could we would award many more.
