The plot was large enough that the kids could play without disturbing everyone. Bikes were provided, that meant the kids could go off cycling - something they really enjoyed and did every day. The pool was 'fresh' due to the time of the year and not being heated, but was very large and didn't stop everyone going in each day. There was also table tennis, darts and basketball available in an outside barn.
The house itself was full of character and well furnished. No issues there, and the inclusion of the wi-fi kept the kids (and father!) happy.
Lovely peaceful location allowed cycling or walks around the local area, with a supermarket 5mins drive away to get supplies.
We booked this holiday as a last minute break, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Anne-Marie was very helpful with directions and advice, and the local assistance, Eric, was helpful and friendly. Plus his English was excellent - a bonus as my French is terrible!

This is the second time we stayed in this house and would not hesitate to book for a third time. We are grandparents, who booked a family holiday for themselves joined by their married children and grandchildren. When we drove thru the gate of the house we felt we came home. It is big enough for us all, is more than well equipped; has a great barn for those hot or rainy days and has a great pool. We all feel the photos do not do it justice. We have yet to find one item that was not available. the grandchildren love it. There are loads of lovely villages and markets to explore and enough exciting parks to visit to keep anyone entertained. There is excellent local support just in case anything goes wrong. We can not recommend it more highly.
