"Fantastic Break in Wonderful Accommodation"

Beautiful house in truly stunning location - the interior of the property was spotless,
warm and inviting and decorated to a very high standard and the outside decking provided us with not only a beautiful view of the Malpere mountains but also a lovely area to enjoy alfresco dining. Having an outdoor pool was a welcome bonus and lovely to cool off in the heat of the day. We had a wonderful meal at Gayda only five minutes away from the house and enjoyed sampling many a bottle of locally produced wine. My husband and daughter enjoyed some real quality time here away from the fast track pace of life in the UK - As a family we couldn't have wished for a better holiday - thanks to the owner and his four legged friend 'Riley' for sharing some wonderful walks wih us.

"Superb accommodation in an idylic rural setting"

We spent a wonderful two week holiday at Maison St. Marcel. The accommodation was truly superb containing everything we could have wished for and more besides. The lovely decking area and pool was equally well equipped and a wonderful space to relax in. There are some lovely circular walks from the doorstep with vineyards and fields of sunflowers on-route. A bakery van arrives in time for breakfast every morning (bar one)with delicious french loaves and crossiants available and there is a weekly butchers van to stock up for the BBQ. Just a short car journey away there are towns with shops, bars and restaurants offering activities to suite every taste. The owner of the property was very friendly and helpful and provided us with many ideas of things to see and do.
