A large 'summer room', with views out over unspoiled countryside, TV (with UK satellite), DVD, Free WiFi,and a shower room and WC. The first floor consists of 3 good size bedrooms, 1 bedroom with double bed, 1 twin bedroom and 1 twin room with bunk beds and a further bathroom / shower room and W.C. (additional sleeping accommodation is available downstairs on double bed settee and if needed a baby cot can be provided at no extra charge). There is an extensive garden with a large private courtyard with original stone bread oven. The 10m x 5m swimming pool has a large terraced area, and a 'summer kitchen' with fridge. The house is situated at the end of the village with no through access for vehicles other than those visiting the house and as such is very child safe, there is however good parking for guests.
When we arrived at La Croix, it was breath-takingly beautiful! The house and the many seating areas were quirky and fascinating. The views over the valley were stunning, particularly at sunset. The pool was well-maintained, as was the garden and the beautiful flowers.
The communication and help that we had from Stephen, the owner, was second to none. We had a visit from the lady who looks after the property on the last day and she brought us fresh artichokes and a bottle of wine.
I was there with my family, including 2 small children and would recommend this for a chill-out holiday. Our intention was to relax by the pool - but the weather had other ideas ): However, we did get out and about to visit dome of the gorgeous sites around. The area is so close to some great sites, river (canoeing), caves, chateaux - too much to chose from!
Thank you for a wonderful week in a most charming house! Want to go back now!!!
