"A wonderfully relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings."

Sue and David could not have been more welcoming or helpful. We had a fabulous 2 weeks in the middle of rural Aquitane. The house is very comfortable and well equipped, with all ages catered for. Our welcome pack was the best ever!!
We enjoyed visiting the various sleepy little hamlets in this part of France returning to swim and lounge by the lovely pool.
We did find the insects a bit of a problem, perhaps net screening in the windows would solve this.

"everything needed available"

The house is just terrific, big, some rooms lovely furnitured and neat. Everything necessary for cooking available in the kitchen and even more....Owners are very dedicated. Swimming pool was very clean, nice view at vineyards. The spot is lovely. Plenty of shadow at hot summerdays. A visit to the nearby castle is recommended (also their wine).
