We have stayed here many times before and with our growing extended family this was the first time we have taken children. We had a fabulous time, and everyone enjoyed it. The house is well equipped and very comfortable. There is plenty of room so we don't all get under each others feet and with 2 swimming pools and 5 children we were in the water a lot!
It is set in beautiful peaceful surroundings. You really get a chance to switch off and relax. Local shops have everything you need and there are plenty of day trips to go and explore the area too. We loved it and can't wait to go back again.
This was our 2nd visit and as before we arrived to what is a very beautifully and comfortably furnished house. We received excellent pre-arrival information from the owner that meant we could stock up en route and put our feet up for the duration of our break. Truly, this house and its location and facilities are excellent. The indoor pool is an absolute gem surrounded by beautiful countryside!
Arriving at Soicherons for the first time is a very happy experience. You, of course, have been well briefed in advance, and have an anticipation of what to expect. The truth is though that the information provided does not fully prepare you for the first impression that the house and it's grounds make.
The farmhouse, an easy days drive from the south of England, has been extremely well refurbished to provide extensive accommodation of the highest order. Very clean and well maintained, it is an 'inviting' home that manages a large household together with providing havens of peace for those that want to escape the madding crowd.
The pools inside and out ( and both are impressive but the inside pool is magnificent) and tennis court, gardens and grounds, and Precy nearby with its boulangeries and supermarket, mean that seeking attraction further afield is a questionable effort - stay, relax and enjoy the charms of a very special place.
A perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday. A fantastically well equipped and comfortable house. Everything is provided to assist in making the perfect holiday, whatever the weather. Suitable for all ages and ideal for the extended family holiday, but so large and spacious that you could always find a quiet corner in which to relax away from the excitement in either of the two pools or on the tennis court. Lovely garden with a most beautiful wild flower patch and set in the middle of the most lovely French countryside. However local shops were in easy reach and we were able to make the most of the local produce and above all the local wine. All in all the most perfect house for a most relaxing family holiday.
Location très agréable, spacieuse et conforme au descriptif.
En pleine campagne, vraiment calme.
Le mode de réservation est inhabituel car il faut payer l'intégralité d'avance par virement, mais tout c'est bien passé pour nous, de la récupération des clefs, à la restitution de la caution.
