Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an absolutely idyllic week at La Germaniere. The house is absolutely beautiful and credit to the children – they were in the pool every day! The house is so well equipped and really nothing we could have wanted that wasn’t there. The open fire is delightful. On the last day we actually had lunch out on the garden so everyone left with lovely memories! We did say it would be lovely to see the house in different seasons and I’m sure you’ll be hearing from us again. In the meantime – have a good winter and hopefully be in touch in 2017 to arrange another visit.
