We stayed in this property for two weeks in July and August 2018. For most of the holiday, the weather was extremely hot as it was for most of Europe. We were joined by another family for the first week and various other family and friends for the second.
We have rented holiday houses over many years but this was our favourite by a long way – it is magnificent. A private, peaceful and rural backdrop away from our usual busy lives but sufficiently close to a boulangerie and supermarket to make food shopping easy.
It is a beautiful house with ample space for twelve guests to spend time together or apart when doing different activities. In the heat of the day, the teenagers were in the TV room watching videos, the student was working on her dissertation in the huge dining room whilst the adults read peacefully in the atmospheric lounge.
A very well equipped kitchen had everything for the keen cook although the heat during most of the holiday meant that we ate very simply and the barbecue got well used. A main fridge and two drinks’ fridges meant that cold beer and wine was available at all times!
Bedrooms were spacious and comfortable and there were lots of well-equipped bathrooms. The two master suites were both lovely - the downstairs one was much cooler.
Outside, the space was equally generous – the pool and table tennis table were used every day and the patio table was a favourite place to sit and chat.
Lovely rural area – day trips to various Chateaux and towns and several wine tasting trips. The heat meant we stayed at the house more than usual but this was no hardship.
Hosts charming and helpful. One small issue with a shower fixed within the hour.
Tout simplement SUPERBE
Nous étions 4 couples d'amies et 5 enfants et nous avons passé un très très agréable séjour dans cette maison tout confort et conforme aux descriptions. Les propriétaires sont très acceuillants et aucune surprise à l'arrivée. La maison est propre, les lits sont faits et les le linge de maison présent. Maison au calme pour profiter pleinement de l'immense jardin et de la piscine chauffée ( les enfants ont passé 5 h/jour ). Il en reste pas moins que bcp d'autres activités sont possible entre foot, badminton, ping pong , pétante et Tir à l'arc.... vraiement au top .
L'aménagement intérieur est vraiement spacieux et on ne se marche pas dessus chaque couple avec sa sdb , ce qui est très appréciable à 12... La cuisines est grande et bien adapté avec son bar pour être à plusieurs. En synthèse on a bien profité et on passé un excellent we de l'ascension.
