The owners were friendly and helpful. They kindly arranged a local doctors appointment for my wife which was very helpful. The house is nicely situated in rural Brittany close to a
small welcoming town with all the basic facilities. The pool area is great and the lounge is spacious.
However, there are several items of furniture that need renovation, sofa, chair, beds. We also needed to get some basic supplies when we arrived,soap, washing powder, tea towels, etc. A welcome pack would have been appreciated. With hindsight we were a bit surprised at the extra payment we had to make towards electricity costs which seemed bit steep for the height of summer.
However, we had a lovely family holiday in an attractive part of France.
