What a little Jem we found "Le Verger" that is, everything was just wonderful & a big thanks to Winston & Patricia for taking very good care of us, once again many thanks.

Absolutely loved our time in this beautiful property. The farmhouse has everything you need for a home from home holiday. The best bit has to be the fantastic pool, equipped with plenty of loungers and umbrellas. I cannot fault this property at all. Winston, the owner, is always on hand for any issues or advice and has become a lovely friend.

Nothing was too much trouble for the most hospitable owner whose care and attention to detail was second to none. The pool area was immaculate with the owner taking great pride in its cleanliness.
The table tennis table was a huge hit particularly with the younger members of our group.All in all we would love to pay a return visit - a resounding success.
