Séjour de grande qualité

Mes parents sont revenus enchantés de ce week-end "Accords Parfaits par Olivier Poussier".
La prestation est de grande qualité, les acteurs (restaurateurs/viticulteurs/ taxi) de ce week-end ont tous été à l'écoute de nos parents. Ils ont été accueillis par des personnes très attentives à leurs moindres attentes....
Ils ont été ravis du domaine de la Soucherie, et les trois restaurants qu'ils ont dégustés était de très grande qualité....Le restaurant d'Angers étant exceptionnel.
En conclusion séjour exceptionnel avec des prestations haut de gammes.
