Overall we were impressed with our holiday home, there were 4 of us in our party (3 adults 1 child)

Finding it was a bit tricky some more detailed driving directions would have been useful rather than the very basic google map in the end we had to call owner who came and met us in the centre of the village and we followed them to the property.

House had everything you could have needed for your holiday, fabulous kitchen complete with plenty of pans, crockery, utensils etc. I was never like Oh I could have just done that.....

Personally I think you'd struggle to house more than 4-6 people as there is only one shower room, comfortable seating was a sofa and single chair so no more than 4 people could sit in the lounge but a lovely big dinning table with 8 chairs. The 2 bedrooms upstairs had double beds but theses were extremely low even with the mattress you would be not more than a 1.5 foot off the floor something to bear in mind if any of you party are elderly and all the bulbs in the bedside lights needed replacing.

Outside space was brilliant although no lighting they didn't appear to be working so it was dinner by candle light if you wanted to be outside, or by the light off your mobile phone to get the house open if you came back late at night. However the pool was great and this is where we spent the majority of our time.

Despite being on the property we rarely saw the owners and certainly didn't uncomfortable and I was very grateful for their assistance when I had a flat battery they very kindly helped me push my car to start it.

Would i recommend the property to a friend? yes I would

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comment ! I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused... While we were not very present during your stay, otherwise we could show you where is the button for the light on the terrace, or replace the bulbs... I inform you that following your remark we added a 2-seater sofa. We try to assure you of our best attention at all times. Best regards, René

Truly idyllic stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with René and Sylvie for a week in April. A truly magnificent experience. Superb accommodation, wonderful location and surrounds.

The cottage itself is more than big enough for a family of 4. 3 bedrooms and 1.5 well appointed bathrooms. Kitchen and dining area with everything you might need. (Even a choice of coffee machine)

Outside area (covered or open) for dining al fresco/BBQ.

Pool is available should you feel the need.

The house is well located for the local markets and is a fabulous base from which to explore the area which is spectacular.

René and Sylvie made us feel like part of the family with genuine warmth and French hospitality!

I would recommend this property without hesitation!

It was wonderful!! Peace and quite, huge yard for kids and dogs

  • 5 of 5

We've had a wonderful time. The people are very very kind without being in your face. The place is most lovely, quite and green. Our dogs and kids had the time of their lives. The house is everything the photo's imply, clean and I cannot think of anything they didn't have in the kitchen. With a very nice swimming pool right on the property, our three week get-away with the kids has been a major succes!

Lovely and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

A very nice place. Located outside Gimbrede it is very peaceful, offering impressive views over the rolling countryside.

The old stone house is detached from the owners' own place and has been renovated to provide comfort and all the modern amenities.

Mr and Mrs Burckel take pride in providing a high quality service. We appreciated that sheets, towels, hair dryer etc were provided and we found all the kitchen utensils we could think of.

We enjoyed the garden, played table tennis, used the swimming pool, went for walks on the quiet country roads, visited picturesque nearby towns and villages, went to markets, feasted on the local cuisine, treated the children to a tree-climbing adventure. Really, that ticked all our boxes!

Un superbe endroit

  • 5 of 5

La maison est située sur une colline dominant la campagne avec une très belle vue.

L'équipement de la maison est irréprochable y compris le nécessaire pour notre petite Judith (7 mois) et le linge de maison est fourni (pratique quand la voiture est déjà bien remplie). La tonnelle permet de bénéficier du soleil dès le matin et apporte de l'ombre au moment les plus chauds de la journée.

La piscine avec transats et matelas.

Tous les commentaires sont élogieux et c'est mérité. Un lieu où aller en toute confiance.

Merci encore à Mme et M. BURCKEL pour leur accueil, leur gentillesse et leur discrétion.
