Reviews:-

We thoroughly enjoyed our week spent in your beautiful home. It was so clean and comfortable with everything we could of possibly needed. A real home from home! The provisions you left us were an unexpected, very thoughtful and welcome touch, especially the wine!! When we could drag ourselves away from your gorgeous pool and garden to explore, the file with local information on markets etc was so useful. Would love to come back and definitely recommend! Helen M. Hampshire.

We have had a wonderful stay at Lambient where every detail has been attended to with style and warmth. The house, pool and grounds are spotless and nothing has been overlooked. Brenda and Paul are the perfect hosts; friendly and helpful, yet totally discreet. We have had many excellent holidays in France over the years and this one exceeds all others due to the superb quality of the property and the excellent hosting skills of the owners. Russell L. Kent.

"It was lovely to meet you all and thank you for a lovely review. Each year we are improving our lovely home and looking forward to showing you all our efforts this year when you return next year. Regards Brenda & Paul"

The house, location and hosts (Brenda and Paul) we're more than we could have wished for. After an exhausting drive, we received a warm welcome and arrived to find a good selection of food that fed 6 hungry people! The house was immaculate throughout and the pool kept sparkling clean and regularly topped up when we popped out for the day. All the rooms, including bedrooms provide more than enough space and the layout of the house worked perfectly for us. A truly fantastic property that I would certainly book again. A huge thank you to Brenda and Paul. Sophia W. Surrey.

"Thank you for your comments they are much appreciated. It was lovely to see you all enjoying our lovely home and surrounding area. The table tennis, badminton and boules were certainly very competitive and for us to see a family using what we have to offer was special. We hope to be welcoming you again in the future. Kind regards. Bren & Paul"

What a great place for a holiday! We are seasoned house-renters in southern France and this is definitely our best find to date. The house is superbly well-equipped, modern and spotlessly clean. The garden is beautifully kept and the pool is perfect - kept clean and covered at night. Paul & Brenda are wonderful hosts, very welcoming on arrival and always happy to help or offer advice, yet they were discreet and 100% respectful of our privacy. Unless you went looking for them you would hardly know they were on site. Finally, Lauzun is a lovely quiet village which offers all the basics including a great boulangerie and an excellent bar-restaurant (Floc'n'Tea) where Mana offers three sumptuous courses for only €14. We found the area enchanting and we never had to travel far to find facilities or entertainment.
