We have just returned from Leinprat for our 3rd year running!
Once again cannot fault anything about the place or its surroundings. It is absolutely delightful, so peaceful and relaxing. The pool was a Godsend!.... As the weather was 'scorching' hot. 😎 Our Grandson loves it and calls it his House in France 😃 Thank you so much once again for a wonderful holiday 😃😎⛱🍦☀️

we first visited this cottage in July 2014 for our holiday and was absolutely thrilled with the accommodation, setting, local amenities so much so that we came back off holiday and rebooked for July this year, and have had a wonderful time yet again and have already booked up again for next year. Can't recommend it highly enough!!!

A very nice, comfy house, great for a larger party. Lovely pool and very clean. Great location for exploring traditional, rural France. I would recommend the property to friends and family. Local canoeing was great fun, trips to the coast and cycling in the lanes were all good.

Just got back from a fabulous relaxing holiday at Leinprat. Can't speak highly enough of the property it's facilities and surrounding area. If you want to get away from it all then this is the place to go and we will certainly look forward to returning at a future date.
