Stayed in the newly renovated barn at the end of the farmhouses back in May 2015. It was very well appointed with a sun trap patio area overlooking the beautiful rolling countryside. The 3 bedrooms are all a good size and the downstairs area is stylish and practical with the beautiful beams running across the ceilings (mind you head if you're over 6'6"!).
The accommodations are predominantly used by families but the barn is great for groups of friends too as the patio/terrace area feels separate from the rest of the property so in the evenings it doesn't feel like you're disturbing others if you fancy a glass or rouge outside!
The gardens are huge and great for playing games and of course the main attraction is the pool which is heated and plenty big enough for the number of people at the property.
Rob and Paula are wonderful hosts and provide a BBQ during your stay which is fantastic and very tasty. They will also give you recommendations about sightseeing, daytrips, local amenities and restaurants in the area. Domaine-du-Suedre restaurant(I hope my spelling is correct!) was a definite hit and we would highly recommend it.
A car is a must in this area, in terms of getting there and getting to the supermarket at least. To see the immediate surrounds, borrowing a bike from Rob and Paula is great fun and is free of charge.
Overall a fantastic, relaxing place for a holiday, perfect for families certainly, but don't rule it out if you don't have kids!
