Stunning rural location and friendly helpful hosts. Quiet relaxing little haven in a comfortable well equipped accommodation. Basic, no frills but clean and perfect for the price. Swimming pool a fab luxury extra. We had it to ourselves most of the time! Well maintained extensive garden to roam in. Table tennis outside great fun. Easy driving for local exploration. Vouvant a friendly and food wonderful. Thanks for a memorable time guys.
