"A wonderful place to relax"

We have just returned from the most relaxing holiday and will definitely return. The house is set in a lovely quiet little village about 5 mins from the main town which has a large supermarket with absolutely everything that you need, we cycled there every day to buy croissants and bread. It was so peaceful and relaxing, the garden is enclosed and very private which would be very safe for young families. The whole house is spotless and very well equipped, the rooms are all tastefully decorated with attention to detail, most importantly, the beds were good quality and comfortable. We were able to sit in the garden as we were lucky that the weather had just turned and was very warm and sunny, we spent hours just looking at all the different species of birds visiting the garden . We are planning to return next year with our family. So pleased that we have found Les Jonquilles.
