A lovely house in charming grounds - 1 hr from Puy du Fou
We enjoyed a lovely week in the house, sharing with another family. Hazel and David were superb hosts with lots of information concerning activities and visits. The location is excellent, set in a small village with a bakery, cafe and take-away pizza restaurant. A good supermarket was only a five minute drive away and it was the same distance to access the A83 Autoroute. Highlights from the stay were the solar heated pools, the amount of outdoor space, canoeing in the marshes, visiting La Rochelle and Puy du Fou. We had a fantastic time and would recommend it to other families.
Well equipped holiday let. Clean and homely.
The property was of high standard and comfortable whilst still feeling homely. The fridge freezer was especially useful delivering ice on tap. The BBQ was big enough for the 10 of us and easy to clean. The added games supplied saved bringing your own. Table tennis and badminton net kept children amused when chores had to be done. Overall good area for facilities with a variety of interesting places to visit.
Thank you for your lovely review Louse and all your party. We are so glad everything was to your satisfaction. Thank you also for leaving the house, grounds and facilities so immaculate. Thanks again Hazel David and family.
Fantastic family holiday house!
We had an excellent time in this wonderful house. The booking process was easy and Hazel was very easy to contact and prompt to reply to any emails that I sent. The house itself is lovely and in a fantastic location, the pool was perfect and with it being heated the children loved it. It was safe with child proof gates. The inside of the house was perfect with lots of space and the children loved the playroom and the well stocked DVD shelf was great for them to chill out with!
The bedrooms were spacious and very comfortable. Only downside was that they were very hot at night time, I think we were there for a particularly hot period.
Hazel and David were on hand if we needed anything and the information pack that they left covered everything we needed. Overall a brilliant place to stay and we would not hesitate to stay again!
Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. Your comments are greatly appreciated. We are really pleased that you enjoyed the property and the facilities provided.

Lovely Property, Beautiful Setting.
This property is ideal for large groups of families or friends - particularly those with children to entertain. There are enough different outside areas for people to have space from each other, alongside a lovely pool and outdoor (covered) lounge and games room, which the owners have put a lot of thought into. It was also very helpful to have Sky TV, a wide selection of books, DVDs and board games which, as a large family with children, we massively appreciated. We also loved the outside gazebo dining area, which can seat 12 or more adults, with children and there are two Barbecues for outside cooking. There is also an inside dining area, downstairs bedroom and showering facilities that are wheelchair accessible. Overall, therefore, the house was exactly what we were looking for. Just a couple of aspects we were less happy with e.g. a shower screen that fell off and the expectation that we, as guests would be providing a deep-clean of the property as well as vacating by 9.30a.m. As we had infants and a young baby with us, there was enough to do on the day of departure so we went for the alternative option of giving the owners another 100 Euros to get a local cleaner in. As this isn't a cheap property to rent, we felt this to be a bit unreasonable however, it didn't spoil the overall enjoyment of the holiday and We definitely enjoyed our week away here.
Plenty to see and do
Good location with access to a lot of interesting places in a beautiful part of France. Plenty of advice and support from the owners on where to go. Excellent outdoor facilities although the pool a bit cold if the sun doesn't shine! Perfect for a large party with children - lots to keep them occupied day and night, indoors and out.
Internally the downstairs shower room needs updating and the en-suite in the master bedroom really could do with a door instead of a curtain!
Hi Paul and Party
Many thanks for your comments. We are sorry that the weather was disappointing for your stay. We appreciate your views on the shower room and the upstairs ensuite and will take these comments onboard. We would just like to thank you once again for leaving the house in such an immaculate conditions (as requested in our T&C's). We would love to have you as guests again.
Beautifully maintained property supported by the owners in residence. Great facilities: swimming pool, games area, play area and outside eating areas. All this is set in a wonderful part of France with great walking and great eating experiences. Fabulous for a large family gathering. Can't wait to return.
