Le Petit Paris is one of the best places to stay. The staff and owners are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. We loved the upstairs superior king room. The breakfast is excellent. A short walking into town for shopping and restaurants.

The pool was a lovely place to while away a few hours and our room was the height of luxury. Colin was really helpful advising us on which vineyards to visit when...
