Very warm welcome from Martin & Roberta who were on hand if we needed anything, but gave us our privacy as well. Knowledgeable about the area, they offered helpful advice on places to visit, eating out and local markets etc.
The cottage is in a fabulous quiet and peaceful setting but close enough to local amenities so that it doesn't feel isolated. Everything we needed was provided and the cottage was very clean and comfortable. The pool and pool area was really well maintained and there was plenty of seating and tables for guests to use. We would definitely return here.
The Trois Lacs with its activities and beaches was a great way to relax and just a short drive away. The village of Aigurande has a lovely busy weekly market (Fridays).

Owner response
