Interaction with guests
David & Valerie, the property owners, live in the cottage next door to La Metairie and will be there to hand you the keys and show you around. You have a separate entrance drive way to the house and full use of the garden and pool area. The owners may use the pool, but only when you are not there! They are around during the evenings to offer advice on where to visit in the area, but generally will leave guests to their own privacy.
