"This is a lovely family ...

  • 5 of 5

"This is a lovely family home with an extremely gracious host. We were treated like family guests upon our arrival. The owner made dinner reservations for us prior to our arrival (at a wonderful restaurant down the hill in Lavardin), gave advice on local attractions, and drove us to the grocery store on our first afternoon to make sure we didn't' get lost!

The view from the terrace was beautiful--cows grazing on the hillside, the ruins of Lavardin castle and the village below. The weather in late June was perfect for dining on the terrace each evening.

My children had a wonderful time exploring the extensive garden and swimming in the pool. We also enjoyed morning walks to the small bakery in the village and evening walks on the surrounding country roads.

Montmallery is the perfect location for a relaxing holiday in the beautiful French countryside."
