I have family in this part of France and had got chatting to Sarah and James when they were originally renovating it. It looked great so each year when I returned I tried to book it. But I'd always le… More
Thanks for your kind words. For those wondering about the booking process, we ask our guests to sign a standard contract as issued by Clévacances who classify holiday accommodation here in France in conjunction with the tourist board. We have been awarded 4 stars/ 4 keys for our cottages. Whilst this is another layer of administration, this contract is heavily weighted in favour of the paying guest so we would hope this is viewed as a benefit. It also is designed around the French civil code so in that respect, is helpful for those not aware of any issues that face renting holiday accommodation.

What a lovely review! Thank you so much. It reflects how much there is to see around here even though you had inclement weather for some of the time. Our dream was to provide relaxing spaces for you of which the plants play a great part. It is so wonderful to wander down the courtyard or sit on a terrace with the aroma of honeysuckle and/or roses wafting on a warm breeze.

Thanks so much for your review and kind words!
We have had many guests who make the trip up to Disneyland only to be disappointed that they spend most time waiting in a queue rather than on rides. Only five minutes drive from us is Nigloland ("Niglo" - slang for hedgehog), one of the largest amusement parks in France. It nestles in a wooded valley, it is reasonable (as amusement parks go) to get in, you can take your packed lunch to eat there in the lovely gardens or eat in the many restaurants/snack bars but best of all, they spend most of the time on rides. They have many rides for both the young and the adventurous. There are days of course when one has to queue for a short while.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay here.
