We had very good time in Fownhope. Host are very nice couple, they host us like family. The place is quite in country side, we see beautiful nature with cows, sheep, birds, cats and flowers. Location is just good for us, so we went to Etretat and St. Malo both directions within 3 days. Decoration inside house is very lovely....
