                                                            Great Accomodation

                                                            Solomon F.

                                                            Came with the family for summer holidays and really liked the property rented. It was neat and tidy and had all facilities required.

                                                            Maison calme

                                                            Hervé M.

                                                            Maison calme, à proximité de la gare, tres pratique pour aller à Londres ! Nous avons eu du soleil toute la semaine.

                                                            Eine schöne Unterkunft

                                                            Astrid P.

                                                            Das Haus ist sehr hübsch und zweckmäßig eingerichtet und bietet alles, was man mit einer 5-köpfigen Familie braucht: zwei Duschbäder, eine großzügige, voll ausgestattete Wohnküche mit Smart TV, ein Elternschlafzimmer und ein recht kleines Kinder-Schlafzimmer sowie ein ausklappbares Sofabett im Wohnzimmer. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

                                                            Unsere Kinder waren von den Pferden und dem Hund des sympathischen Vermieters sehr begeistert.

                                                            Für Ausflüge nach London können wir dem Zug ab Headcorn sehr empfehlen. Stressfreier und preiswerter geht es mit dem eigenen Auto sicher nicht.


                                                            Sophie L.

                                                            Le propriétaire est vraiment adorable, il parle très bien français, il nous a donné de très bons conseils de visite. Il est très serviable (d'ailleurs tous les anglais que nous avons rencontrés ont été très serviables !!)

                                                            La location est très agréable et spacieuse (sauf la chambre des enfants qui est un peu petite mais en même temps nous n'étions pas là pour rester dans nos chambres !), très pratiques les 2 salles de bains

                                                            La location est située dans la magnifique campagne anglaise mais Londres est à 1 heure de train à partir de la gare de Headcorn petit village à côté de Sutton Valence

                                                            Bref c'était génial et nous avons hâte d'y retourner
