"Wonderful family holiday home in a stunning setting"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chez Nous. With two families with young children we were looking for a safe house where we didn't have to spend our time worrying. The house has a perfect layout for two families and has a wonderfully large living area.... The bedrooms are spacious and there is ample storage for clothes. Chez Nous setting is simply stunning - unfortunately we just missed them blooming but you are surrounded by fields of sunflowers and vines.
The locations is very rural, but the bakery is in jogging distance.
The only thing with having such young children was that the pool was very cold and so they could only spend a small amount of time in there.... We took a few inflatable paddling pools so it worked perfectly.
This was undoubtedly one of my favourite holidays and many memories were made. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend this property....

"Great facilities in gorgeous and quiet surroundings"
A great place for a peaceful holiday in rural France. The property is large with an adequate swimming pool and plenty of games and eqipment, such as bicycles and table tennis. There are numerous attractions to explore if necessary, especially the chateaux producing cognac.

"Perfect family house"
We had a fabulous stay at Chez Nous. It is set away from the small village which has a bakery, butchers, pizzeria and small supermarket. Lovely views over the sunflower fields and very peaceful. Travelling with extended family, we were all accommodated comfortably with a great bedroom:bathroom ratio. staying in the house is like visiting the home of a friend in terms of what is available to families. Our kids loved the table tennis, badminton and table football, and having access to bikes was fantastic and meant an enjoyable bike ride to the village bakery. The pool was a little chilly for the grown ups at first but the children were less fussy! Great to have the barbecue and a lovely patio. The upstairs landing also had a play room area with toys which was great for the little ones. Thanks for a great stay

"Beautiful Villa perfect location"
As a family we have stayed in many villas over the last few years this one is by far the most beautiful and for us the perfect location, we would highly recommend it to others. The attention to detail e.g. bikes, games room and welcome goodies were very much appreciated,
