A perfect property in a lovely secluded location. Our party of 7 (four adults and 3 young children) enjoyed the house and pool on days when we wanted to relax, and on days when we explored the countryside, it proved to be a good location for travelling without having to go via large towns.
On days when the weather was very hot, the pool was a perfect spot to cool off, and the house - being built of stone with very thick walls, was always pleasantly cool.
The owners were very welcoming and happy to help.
Overall, the atmosphere was just right for a relaxing holiday, and I am very happy to recommend Domaine de Couchet.
We were delighted to hear that you enjoyed the house and grounds for your family holiday this Summer. Thank you for recommending Domaine de Couchet.
