Beautiful House, Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous 2 weeks at this lovely house, the property provides an ideal base for exploring the local area. The house is well maintained, very clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The gardens and stunning countryside views are fabulous, the garden area is extensive providing plenty of seperate space for relaxing and playing ball games with the children.The heated pool was perfect and the loungers around the pool were very comfortable. We ate outside most of the time and made good use of the barbecue area. A car is essential as the nearest supermarket is a 15 minute drive away but there are 2 bar/restaurants in the village 5mins drive providing excellent very reasonably priced meals where a Menu Du Jour is available for approx 11euros pp. I can't recommend the property highly enough and the caretaker couldn't do enough for us, he was at hand if and when he was needed. If you like to 'get away' and enjoy a bit of rural France this property is ideal.

Lovely rural farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very relaxing time at this lovely farmhouse. The house is very comfortable, spacious and beautifully furnished and has everything you could possibly need. The large gardens and heated pool are fantastic and it's a rare treat to sit with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down in such beautiful surroundings. We would definitely recommend the property and the area to freinds and family.

Perfect holiday Spot

  • 5 of 5

We all had a really good time staying at your property, the house was very well equipped and was spotlessly clean, the beds were very comfortable. The heated pool was excellent and the children loved the outside space where they could kick a ball about.

Overall a a great base for a very relaxing holiday and a special thank you to the caretaker who looked after us and where nothing was too much trouble.
