“On a passé un séjour idyllique dans cette propriété au coeur de la nature mais proche de la ville de Courtenay. L'endroit est paisible, propre et très bien aménagé avec un jardin magnifique - nous avons aimé prendre nos repas au bord de la piscine. Nous avons déjà planifié de revenir.”

“Staying at David and Lucille's was the perfect experience to provide much needed relaxation and rejuvenation. The property, the decor and their care in all aspects of their home literally transports you to Italy or Provence, with geraniums potted beautifully around the pool, and the serenity of the property and hosts! Personally, I have never stayed in a more well appointed apartment, and we both loved the 'rain shower'. We were so happy to settle in so easily, we stayed an extra night :) David and Lucille were very respectful of our privacy and yet, welcoming and friendly. We loved the peach scones and David's gallery - amazing! It was a quick zip down the hill to town on our bikes and we spent time each day cycling along the gorgeous river trails, through the forest and by the sea. Please be in touch any time you are in Victoria. Sincerely and with much gratitude, *sally and Stu”
