"The Ideal Holiday from Home."
Our 13th holiday speaks volumes - the quality of the facilities, which include a shared swimming pool and excellent patio area, is second to none. "Le Grenier" is spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean, hence our numerous visits. It has, and still continues to be, our little bit of "Eden", and for our children and grandchildren. Mike and Linda, the hosts, are exceptionally friendly and helpful, making each and every holiday memorable. Tony and Gwen.
