"We had such a lovely stay. The house and garden are beautiful. This farm house has been so thoughtfully renovated, every space in the house and garden is incredibly charming. We made full use of the well-equipped kitchen to cook for thirteen each night. The west facing outdoor seating is perfectly arranged for evening sunsets. The pool and pool toys are great fun. Thank you to Leo & Kate for a great experience in Puylagarde."
