"Perfect stay for family groups..."
We stayed here for 2 weeks last summer with my extended family.The village has everything you need including an excellent butcher that supplied our regular BBQ's in the gorgeous courtyard garden.The house is perfect for large families and there are walks by the lake in the pine forests and the vineyards right on your doorstep.Early evening we often went to the bouledrome for a game of petanque with the locals.
The teenagers were very happy with the cinema games room and we all enjoyed a splash in the pool when the temperatures rose.The house is perfect for kicking back and relaxing with plenty to do so no need to go out if you don't want to. Laure is very well placed for all the surrounding activities.We discovered 3 different swimming lakes and even took a day trip to Spain.
There are festivals and markets every week in the surrounding villages celebrating anything from honey to apples or horses! A perfect charming house for a family holiday! Will definitely recommend to friends.
