House Rules
Check out by 1AM

Guests are asked to behave as quietly and respectfully to others as possible. Children will obviously be expected to make a certain amount of noise, but I would expect the parents to monitor their behavior especially in the shared areas. Damage to the property should be avoided, but in cases where accidents happen these should be reported to the host immediately so that things can be rectified as soon as possible. Small parties of up to 10 people are allowed, but once again noise needs to be kept to a minimum.

We had a very nice stay in Penelope's house which is quite confortable, with a big terrace and garden. We had a whole floor just for us. Unfortunately, we could not meet Penelope who had to leave for personal reasons. But the remote contact was great.

Hemos pasado una semana muy agradable en casa de Penelope. Es muy antigua, pero bien conservada y limpia. La terraza y el jardín son preciosos y el pueblo muy tranquilo. Aunque no hemos podido conocer personalmente a Penelope, en todo momento nos ha atendido muy bien, desde la información que nos ha transmitido sobre la casa hasta los consejos sobre qué hacer en la región.

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine chez Pénélope, nous avons pu profiter de la terrasse, du jardin et du barbecue. Le village est sympathique avec une incroyable boucherie et boulangerie. La région offre de multiples activités et mieux de visites. Pénélope est une hôtesse charmante même si nous ne l'avons pas rencontré, je recommande vivement.

Cet endroit était un parfait petit cocon pour les vacances. Calme, beau, invitant à la créativité ou la flânerie. Et la région est superbe. Que du bonheur !
