This excellent roomy and spacious accommodation was well sheltered and was the home of 3 generations for 2 weeks in a hot August. The buildings are well shaded, and the patios and dining areas, of which there are 3, are well protected from direct sunlight. Everything is provided on the domestic front. There are plenty of extras provided to keep the children happy.
The property is about 2 miles from the nearest small town, easily bikeable with the bikes provided, so it is peaceful yet close to normal facilities. The on site swimming pool was well used as was the english TV (it was Olympic time).
Normal facilities, such as supermarkets, shops, and activities for children are within easy reach.

We stayed in July 2012 in the typical french farmhouse with all the luxery, sport equipment, toys for the children inclusive the footballtable and snookertable. Very nice swimmingpool with full day sunshine. Ideal location for exploring the region with very nice nightmarkets were you can enjoy the local food. Nearby big supermarket. The house was very clean and the area around the house was also very well kepped. We missed nothing in the place, we were more surprised about everything there was. The house is located at the end of a dead ending small way, so quit and with an astonishing view.
We woul like to thank the owners for their hospitality.
