This lovely old barn is so well equipped and comfortable, it was a joy to spend time in. The pool and gardens were ideal for whiling away the day - so very peaceful. the kitchen is without doubt the best equipped i have ever come across in a rented house - there is even an artichoke steamer!
The Master bed is more comfortable than my own at home and there is ample linens including swimming towels. all in all a great rental

We stayed for 2 weeks in early spring with our two boys and had a wonderful time. The house is situated in a quiet hamlet with a lovely garden. Inside the kitchen is well equipped and the rest of the house was perfect. It's a great base for exploring the area. The Sunday market at Saint Antonin is a must. Great spot to go with children, Highly recommended!
