Bois de Printemps

You are very welcome to visit the English owners Dave and Doreen, who have put their heart and soul into Bois de Printemps over the past years so  they can welcome you to this beautiful part of France from April.

A large accommodation is approximately 35 meters from the water, sliding doors connect the outside with the inside and have a wonderful view over the lake.
