Guest Reviews Of La Mirande - The Cottage

Loic
1/31/14

My week at La Mirande was wonderful.  I stayed in the self catering cottage, which is very spacious and comfortable.  I especially appreciated the light filled sun room.

I am a photographer and musician, so was really inspired by the beautiful surroundings, both inside and out. La Mirande is on top of a plateau, so one can see all the way to the Alps.

We spent an afternoon exploring the ancient cave dwellings at Montbrun, which is a short distance away. It was also fun to visit the animals on the nearby farm, which is entertaining for all ages, young or old.

Gray was a great host and has a wealth of information about things to do and see in the region.  This is a place I will definitely return to

5/5
