10 / 10 Pat & family 23 August, 2017

We stayed here for two weeks as a party of 10. We were greeted by the owner who is very friendly and welcoming, we had a lovely hamper left for us after our long journey (thank you), she made us feel part of her family. The property was beautiful, everything had been thought of to make our stay perfect, stunning views too. Heated swimming pool which all of us enjoyed is cleaned for you. There is plenty of grass area for children to run around and play, even a tree swing! The area is very rural and very peaceful but there are lots of things to do and places of interest not too far away. We were not bothered by the owner, we were just left to relax and enjoy our holiday. We didn't want to leave as we all had such a brilliant time and hopefully will be back. A big thank you from us all.

10 / 10 Kevin-Field 28 January, 2017

All I can say is that the holiday for me and my family was superb, extremely relaxing, great facilities and a wonderful host whom looked after us from start to finish.

The house was amazing, clean and very picturesque, set way out in a lovely part of France that was very peaceful and panoramic. The heated pool was the best part of the holiday and didn't have to worry about the kids as it was one depth throughout. Plenty of space for all of us to enjoy the place together or on our own.

The local towns were great with lots to buy and see, very historical, which was one of the reasons we chose this area.

In summary we will be returning and have pre booked for late 2017 as this place was totally relaxing and possibly the best nights sleep I have had in years.

Well recommended, you wont find better in southern France.


Owner response

Thank you Kevin and your lovely family

Thank you also for leaving the house so tidy, and looking after the property so well. I am glad you enjoyed our lovely views also the peace and quiet. I look forward to your visit this year and thank you for booking with us again.
Best wishes pattie
