It has been my experience that when someone tells me good things about a place, most of the time it turns out to be a great disappointment. However the Manager's words about the friendliness of everyone, came out to be completely true in every way I look at it, from when I arrived in Reyrolles right up until when I left.
Last year a friend of mine from here, who had never been to the north,visited Gateshead and Newcastle. He said he liked it so much that he extended his stay.
Hopefully in the not too distant future, my wife and I will be able to retrace my steps to my old hunting grounds.
All the best
