"A lovely property in a wonderful setting with very accommodating patrons"
An amazing property in a peaceful area of France with a wonderful swimming pool for my 3 yr old. The house itself was in very good order and the grounds just beautiful. Highly recommend it!

"The Perfect Christmas"
We chose Le Helleguy as our Christmas destination having stayed elsewhere in the area the previous year. I cannot describe highly enough the quality of this accommodation or the hospitality of the owners. It truly was the perfect Christmas from the moment we arrived to find the cottage decorated for the season and the excellent kitchen stuffed with goodies and produce from the local area.
The cottage itself is incredibly well appointed in every way and the location could not be any more peaceful. Relaxing in front of the roaring log burner enjoy fine food and wine made it a truly memorable experience. The owners even supplied us with a local turkey for our Christmas lunch.
We are actually hoping to return again this year as we were made so welcome and loved the place so much. There are plenty of facilities for families staying there in the warmer months and lots to do in the local area.

"We WILL be back!"
La Grange is a lovely property and Neil and Tricia were amazing hosts! The house is beautiful with every need thought of prior to our arrival. The refridgerator was stocked with all necessities including homemade jellies and breads, so no trip to the local market was ever needed. The home was impecible and had an abundance of space for our family of four. We travelled with my parents and 2 sisters, as well, who occupied La Chaumiere across the drive. That was also a beautiful property. Our 2 small children had plenty to do onsite with the grassy areas and 2 swingsets...not to mention Neil and Tricia's pup, Connie! It was a fabulous stay and we will be back! I highly recommend their properties!

"A tranquil haven with all the comforts of home and more!"
Le Helleguy is furnished and equipped to a very high standard, and we particularly enjoyed the complimentary welcome basket packed with quality French produce.
The cottage is so cosy and it was great to have the log burning stove and large collection of dvd's available to keep us warm and entertained in the cold winter week that we stayed.
Neil & Tricia have thought of everything and we will be back without a doubt!

"A lovely place to stay, good location, great for families and adults, well equipped, fanatsic pool."
We had a really good week in August 2011. The location is great for us with four young children.
The cottages are really well equipped comfortable and very clean, we found the owners really helpful, and felt that we had they achieved the right balance between privavcy and helpful support. Their cottage is onsite.
The pool is great, there are decent adult bikes, CD's books and games. the gardens are pretty and well maintained.
We would gladly go there again.

"A beautiful and relaxing family friendly holiday"
We cannot recommend La Grange highly enough, having now stayed four years on the trot it is testament to how well we rate it! We were a party of 4 adults and 2 children (2&4). The accommodation flows well, has all "mod cons" and is at a level of comfort that makes it home from home. The grounds are extensive, extremely well maintained and child friendly. A wonderful pool, swings, slide, space to kick a ball what more do you need. Neil and Tricia are amazing hosts. They cater for your every need in a very unassuming way that is warm and friendly. They are always smiling, which is infectious and they go that extra mile to make your stay extra special, even to the point of offering to babysit for us so that we could venture out one evening. We have had some fantastic times here, great memories that will stay with us all for a very long time. Wonderful!
