Notes:
A croquet set, boules, table tennis sets, bar football balls range of games and children's toys are available. So are tennis rackets, though very serious players will need to bring their own, since those we have are okay for knocking about and informal games, but not much more. If you are lucky you will find tennis balls there, but you should reckon on bringing or buying your own. The house and environment are very child friendly -- no traffic and facilities for children of all ages -- over the years we have built up quite a collection of toys etc. And some children seem to spend all day on the swings, which can be a constant source of delight.

wonderful house and garden, a French oasis

  • 5 of 5

It is a great house for 2 families to share. There is so much to do at La Nique (swimming, tennis, ping pong, table football, croquet ..), it is tempting not to do much else! We enjoyed the nearby lake, markets etc. The house is very well equipped. We loved it,.

A perfect week

  • 5 of 5

A spacious family property that ideally suited our group (grandparents, 2 sets of parents and a total of 3 small grandchildren not forgetting the dog). It was superbly equipped throughout (so much so, there was little space in the kitchen to store our own food!). It had loads of character, in fact it had a typical French farmhouse atmosphere. The pool was wonderful, ideal for the very hot weather we were lucky enough to experience, all set in extensive grounds ideal for children of all ages. We would not hesitate to recommend this property, and return again soon.

Lovely, relaxing holiday at a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a week's relaxing holiday with our 2 dogs here and were so pleased we booked this. The villa is beautiful with all the mod cons. Well equipped kitchen and plenty of bedrooms to choose from. The pool was just the right temperature with plenty of land surrounding it all and a tennis court! This was all set in the beautiful French countryside. You literally hear nothing!

The local village is a 5 min drive away where you can get supplies and of course your morning baguettes but for a larger shop Marmande has a large Carrefour that caters for everything and is only 15 min drive away.

Highly recommended and look forward to coming back again.

Charming house, great pool and tennis court, peaceful and pretty location.

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped and comfortable house, all very easy, just like home! Great to have the table tennis/ football as well as the excellent pool and tennis court. Would love to go again. Nice walks, 12th century chapel nearby, lovely wild flowers, pretty garden. A treat!

Lovely property and setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Nique in June and had a fabulous time. The weather was mainly sunny and warm but with some cloudy and one wet day, but even on the less sunny days there was plenty to occupy ourselves – ping-pong, bar football, board games et cetera – and we loved it. The house is well equipped and the pool and tennis court are fabulous and there is so much space to get away from people if and when necessary. We will definitely go again if we can.
