We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation here in the countryside. The home (note I say home and not house as this is truly a home, cozy, welcoming and beautiful) was as we expected it from the pictures and description and more. Charming decorations, comfortable bedding, ample space for parents and the 4 kids. Amazing play attic the size of a basketball court with lots of toys and sports equipment. If the kids were not running outside or playing in the huge pool, they were up there playing and enjoying themselves. We loved the view from the terrace overlooking the hills and valley, and enjoyed many a meal at the outdoor table. The children loved feeding the donkey and horse, but the chickens were the most interesting animals on the farm!
Bruno and Fanny were very welcoming and always ready and willing to help.
Supermarkets and bakeries were a short drive away in the Belville area and it took us 45 minutes to drive to Lyon for a day trip. We also strongly recommend day trips to Bourg en Bresse (the Monastery of Brou is incredible) as well as Chatillon-Sur-Chalaronne, preferably on Saturday for the incredible and quintessentially French market. Obviously there are many other things to see and do and we definitely made use of the close proximity of a number of excellent Beaujolais vineyards. It was so nice and enjoyable we immediately decided to come back next year to spend another couple of weeks in this wonderful home, and booked before we had even left.
The air is fresh, the nights show a blanket of stars and well, we simply do not have enough adjectives for the home, the area and most of all for the incredible hosts. We left here with such a sense of peace and relaxation. Just what is needed after a year of busy family and work life.
