10 / 10 Love French Holidays 13 April, 2018

Le Quesnay is a fabulous place to relax and enjoy a break. The house is beautifully appointed with bags of space from the very generous en-suite bathrooms to a fantastic amount of living space on the ground floor. The kitchen is simply marvellous and a wonderful space to cook and entertain. There is plenty of space in the grounds to play games and entertain children/teenagers. The nearby village is just a short bike ride away and boasts a lovely bakery for the daily croissant run. The location of Le Quesnay is ideal - rural enough to get away from it all, but within a few minutes you can head to the coast, and a variety of interesting sightseeing destinations. The preperty is very clean and well-maintained. I'd recommend it as a superb holiday destination to anyone. Can't wait for my next visit.

I first stayed at Le Quesney in the summer of 2016 with my friend's family and stayed there again the following year. I thoroughly loved my time there, the house is located with the perfect balance of beautiful rural French countryside and is also an easy driving distance away from local towns and villages in the area, giving you the best of both worlds. The house is a true beauty and it what made the holiday for me, it is styled as a traditional French farmhouse which gives the place such character and warmth.
I loved the rustic feel of the wooden floors and exposed beams with the addition of modern appliances in the bathrooms, kitchen and the addition of wifi brings together old and new in perfect harmony. The house and its outdoor space provides plenty of room for group entertainment but also with enough space for you to have some “me time” if needed. The swimming pool area has provided many days of fun and swimming with friends but also provides a central hub to gather in the warmth of a French summer evening. Le Quesney makes the perfect holiday spot.
