We recently visited 'The Cherries' and had a fabulous week. The property had everything you  needed for a comfortable stay, in addition to this the location was brilliant. It is in the grounds of the owners house, but still maintained privacy and quiet. Lovely to sit out in the garden with a glass of wine and a meal or relax on the sun loungers. The owners were on hand if you wanted to ask any advice or need anything. The area itself is very much rural and very quiet, but, there are plenty of small picturesque villages not too far away. The Cherries is very much a place to relax and recharge the batteries.

This property was everything it said it would be, quiet, peaceful, clean and a great place to relax and enjoy France. The location was great for us, it was very relaxing but still near enough to go out for day trips. The owners were very helpful and there if needed. I would definitely recommend this property to others. A welcome pack on arrival was gratefully received - baguette, wine, tomatoes and a few extra bits to start our holiday off. Great holiday would definitely like to go back again.
