We were a party of two families. (11 in total)
We arrived in the evening to a very welcome greeting from the owner Isabelle who couldn't of been more helpful throughout our stay.
The house was spacious,clean and the kitchen was well supplied with utensils etc.
A beautiful setting in open countryside, yet getting any where local towns, coast etc was an easy drive away.
Would we go back? Oh YES!!!

We had a wonderful Christmas holiday with all the family (9 of us in all). The property was very well equipped, clean and very welcoming. What better than a huge open log fire and peace and quiet. The children loved the nearby pets and also made much fuss of the nearby horses and donkey. The owner made us very welcome and we would certainly like to go back again.

We recently spent a wonderful relaxing week at 'La Ferme de Forge'. It is a beautiful old farmhouse in lovely farmland setting. There were 7 of us staying and there was plenty of room. Surrounded by fields and orchards. Lovely garden & surrounding area, great for kids to run around in and there are swings and other outdoor play items for the children. Animals for the children to pet and they also had a ride on the pony! It is in a great location with only a short journey to the lovely beaches, many pretty surrounding villages & there is a great zoo only 5 mins away! Isabelle, the owner, is a really lovely lady who makes you feel very welcome. We would definately return here for another holiday either in the same house or in the smaller cottage Tante Agnes which we had a look around, it is a lovely place and would be ideal for up to 6 people. Thank you for a lovely holiday!
