Ideal for our combination of three families with 6 children ranging in age from 5 to 20 in a total of 12 people, bedrooms and bathrooms perfect. The advert did not do justice to the house in particular to the lounge and kitchen both very large.Sue was there to greet us on arrival and on the end of the phone when needed and to pass on local info.The ample pool area was secure and well equipped with loungers ,the high wall around the entire property gave us total privacy and security. The garden area next to the tennis court was large enough for football and cricket with no balls going over the wall.As always it took a few days to find our way around but we found enough to entertain us for two weeks within a 3/4 hour radius by car. 10mins walk over the road is the Moulin d'canard restuarant with an enjoyable Friday night quiz night. Great day on the river at Condac and all day at a vide grenoir in Villefagnan!
Never got around to using the fishing gear we took but visited the lake a couple of times using the bikes provided, 3 mins safe cycle away.
Thoroughly recommend the house for large families and thanks to Sue and Len for being great hosts.

Had a fabulous holiday, everything we expected and more. The accommodation was very good with a well equipped kitchen. Plenty of space for the youngsters to run around in the large garden. Swimming pool was really nice. Plenty of things to do I.e tennis court, pool table , table tennis etc. The owners were really welcoming and very friendly a pleasure to meet them.
