The Paradis Gite is everything we ever wished for in an accommodation and more! Paul et Karen were incredibly helpful from the first minute on, aiding us to navigate the sheer endless sites to explore in this marvellous region. We truly appreciated the feeling of being welcome, the heartfelt details, ( homemade cake in the fridge) and the tranquility. We will want to come back rather sooner than later! Thank you both for making this a truly relaxing and memorable stay.
