Wonderful location for a family celebration.

  • 5 of 5

The family spent a week at Les Trois Arbres in the middle of August to celebrate a special birthday. We had 10 adults and 5 children aged between 10 years and 12 months. All were happily accommodated in the 3 properties. This the perfect place for a family holiday. Our hosts Liz and Patrick could not have been more helpful and did everything to ensure that we all had a wonderful time.

Spacious well maintained property.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time on this holiday, the property was perfect for our large group (15 including 6 children below 10). The multiple houses, eating and social areas were perfect to allow different groups to do different things and the multiple properties allowed those who didn't want to be disturbed by children to have plenty of their own space.

The kids loved the pool and even those adults who would never get in an outside pool found it warm enough to have a regular dip.

We did not do too many excursions but the wine tasting and canoeing were both highlights. I would recommend the wine tasting at the beginning of the stay so that you can enjoy through the week!

verry good

  • 5 of 5

Beau, spacieux, propre, calme et accueil très sympathique de la part des propriétaires.

Seul point négatif : la barrière de la piscine ne va pas jusqu'au sol, les enfants peuvent passer en-dessous, et ils peuvent ouvrir la porte car le système de fermeture n'est pas sécurisé, c'est dangereux avec des enfants qui ne savent pas nager.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for this valuable valuable feedback. We note that the motorized pool cover conforms to French Law and is easily closed within seconds by the turn of a key when the pool is not in use. There is a bolt on the gate to the pool but we are happy to provide a combination padlock too. We were extremely surprised that the concerns about the small gap between the bottom of the pool gate and the gravel path were not brought up at any time during the holiday and in light of this review we will modify the gate.

Delightful !!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family holiday with 17 of us ranging from 4 to 70. We all absolutely fell in love with the three properties and all felt that the photographs didn't do them justice. We were welcomed by the owners on our arrival, who were really lovely people, they showed us around the houses making sure that we were comfortable and knew where everything was. Each home had a welcome pack which was a lovely gesture and gratefully received. The houses are all beautifully decorated, clean and have everything that a large family needs. We could all eat together by the side of the pool, in the large dining room, kitchen or covered patio area.The pool was in constant use and the gardens provided safe play areas for the children or sunbathing for adults. We wanted a quiet family break away from the hustle and bustle of working life and we couldn't have wished for better. We want to come again and recommend this to everyone. Thanks for a lovely holiday, wish we could have stayed longer. Debbie
