10 / 10 Lodge family 14 August, 2016

We recently spent a week at Maison Gaillard and had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing holiday. It was extremely peaceful and the pool and garden made the holiday an absolute hit with our children. The owners were very helpful and even met us at the village centre on arrival to help us find the house without a problem. They are lovely people who provide an extremely clean and excellently maintained house.
We hope to return to Maison Gaillard in the future to enjoy the relaxation and beauty of the surrounding countryside as well as the beautiful gardens which our children loved. The perfect French getaway with more than a touch of luxury.
