10 / 10 The Washingtons 1 October, 2018

I would definitely recommend The Walnuts to all my family and friends. We enjoyed a fantastic week. Keith and Vicky were really helpful and welcoming. I would definitely recommend tasting Vicky's cooking. The meal she made us was superb. The accommodation, pool and facilities are exceptional. We could not believe how lovely the weather is at the end of September. 29 degrees at 5pm. Definitely recommend a trip to Izzigeac on a Monday when it's market day. Such a beautiful area of France!

Owner response

Walnuts is a fantastic property, immaculate, comfortable, no expense spared. Beautiful surroundings.

The hosts were very attentive and there if needed, otherwise you were left to your own devices.

Vicky is a great cook and provided an evening meal that would put French restaurants to shame.

We all had a fantastic holiday and was reluctant to leave.

We are booking our return stay as soon as possible.

I would highly recommend.
