Beautiful location and great pool near the fabulous village of Bourdeilles
We really enjoyed our two weeks in Bourdeilles. The house is in a great spot with beautiful views and a large pool. 'Luxury' may be pushing it a bit as a description of the house. It was big and well equipped, but in need of some TLC. I think there were a couple of things we could have been made aware of aswell... You can't drink the water so you need to buy bottled (we didn't know this till we arrived), and although there was a large playroom it was completely taken up with a huge snooker table that we were told in no uncertain terms we were not to touch. My parents in law were also surprised that there was no change of sheets after a week, given the cost of the rental. Location though was great. We really enjoyed the local village bbq and our trips up to the chateau. The cycling was hilly but good for the fitter members of our party. Overall a beautiful spot.
Superb house with great character. Stayed as 2 families loads of space indoor and outdoor. Great very large heated pool and gardens very safe. Caretaker was really nice and very helpful. We really had a lovely stay there in such a beautiful countryside. The nearby Chateau was a real bonus
Thanks for the review - hope to see you again
Perfect for Us
The farmhouse matched its description in every way. Spotlessly clean on arrival, well equipped and comfortable, the property was perfect for our group of 10 which included grandparents, parents and four children under three. The location is beautiful and close to many picturesque towns and villages with a very good choice of places to eat out. Two weeks of warm sunshine were the icing on the cake.
Thank you for taking the time to review the house
Beautiful house with lots of character. The cleanest house in which we have stayed in over 15 years of renting French property. The pool and gardens were lovely and really well kept - perfect for our small grandchildren who had a great time in safe freedom. They particularly loved the music around the pool. The quality of the beds and bedding was superb, again something with which we have had poor past experiences. The ceiling fans were a great addition. All in all a truly lovely experience. Aidan was a pleasure to deal with and it was a very easy transaction. I would totally recommend.
Thanks Sarah for taking the time to post a review - we hope to see you next summer Aidan
