Had a fabulous week at the property with plenty of room for 3 generations. The photos don’t actually do the property justice, so it was even nicer in reality. Had a lovely warm welcome from the owners, who were available if needed but otherwise unobtrusive. Everything was spotless on arrival and all the plentiful thoughtful provisions supplied were very appreciated.The outside areas are especially good with a lovely shaded eating and BBQ area, plus other seating places elsewhere in the big garden. The pool is a good size and has plenty of room around it for sun loungers. The location was ideal, with a local shop just a few minutes walk away for croissants etc and a good sized supermarket a few minutes drive. There are plenty of day trips available locally if you can drag yourself away from the pool! We especially enjoyed going to Coulon and La Rochelle. We all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would definitely return and recommend to friends.
