Perfect property in stunning grounds.
This is a beautiful holiday home which lives up to the online information provided. It is spacious, comfortable, immaculately clean, has a lovely pool area and many activities to keep the children amused and parents happy, the whole family are catered for at this property and nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. Many pretty villages surround the accommodation and Moncoutant was a short walk away if we needed to stock up on essentials. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and did not want to leave. We would not hesitate to recommend this holiday home and will definitely return.

DEAN LINZI EDEN AND ELLA
Lovely house, grounds and facilities for a family holiday. The property sits on the side of a main road which was extremely noisy at the time of our stay. That was the only disappointment. The property owners are extremely friendly and helpful.
Thank you for the feedback, this was a lovely family who were an absolute pleasure. Unfortunately during their stay at the proeprty the pavement outside of the property was being dug up due to new electric and telephone cables being laid. This was unfortunate timings over which we had no control.
less than 2km from the large village of Moncoutant which has a several bars, restaurants, large supermarket, post office, Pharmacy, Boulangerie, banks, cafes and hairdressers. A new kebab restaurant opened this week (09 May 2015) it is very very good also a new pizza restaurant both also do take aways and are only 10 minutes walk from the property.
