La Mazurie August 2016

  • 5 of 5

A lovely location and beautiful property for our extended family holiday. Plenty of space, fantastic pool for young children to play and adults and children to swim, very accessible for someone who is disabled, with most rooms on the level, or just one or two manageable steps. Beautiful vineyard views and plenty of private space. Property well maintained and equipped, and plenty to do in the area. Highly recommended.

An Oasis of Calm - The Ultimate in Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We took a month off from busy London to spend some time in the countryside of France. We chose this charming renovated farmhouse. The house was comfortable and spacious, with a great playroom and toys for our young son to play with inside and out. A separate sleeping area meant that we could have friends over without feeling our space and privacy was being infringed. We enjoyed shopping for French delicacies at nearby St Foy La Grande (the butcher and bread shop in particular are to be commended). We ate many of our meals outside on the terraces where we had sun in both morning and afternoon with terraces on the front and back of the house.

The highlight of our day was our walk in the neighboring fields after dinner. We also enjoyed the large selection of French and English books for both adults and kids in the library on our lazy evenings at home.

On a functional basis, the home was very clean and linens, towels etc were impeccable. To be recommended. We would come again.

Great, well-maintained property.

  • 5 of 5

I arrived at this property have no expectations, good or bad. I left with a great impression. The house was clean, well provisioned, and well preserved (it is a very old house with some new add-ons and renovations). Everything we wanted was already there and working: good internet connection, clean pool, working appliances, cooking and dining items, flat-screen TV and movies, and beautifully preserved old wooden floors and stairs that creaked in a very satisfying and quaint way when I walked on them.

While I do not have children, I noted that there were lots of pool toys for kids and, had the weather been better (I experienced a very, very rare cold spell in late May) I would probably have enjoyed them too.

The only thing necessary to bring to this house (you don't even have to bring peace of mind, as you will find yours there) is a car to visit the surrounding areas. Although there are a couple places to eat within walking distance, and a nice cherry tree in the patio, you should remember that this is the countryside. That means no Starbucks or Costa Coffee across the street. The nearest supermarché is a mile or two away, and the train station will take you an hour by foot.

In short, this is beautiful, romantic getaway in the French countryside. If you love French wine, or would like to get to know more about it, and you appreciate the tranquility of hill-upon-hill of rolling, carefully manicured vineyards, is hard to think of a better place for you to be.

La Mazurie September 2012

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our holiday. It is large and very wil presented. Surrounded by vinyards and with a pool in the private garden we didn't need to leave. Ludovic is very accomodating and helpful. Though a car is essential as it is very rural, the big supermarket is only 10 minutes drive away.

I would certainly recomend it.

Great Holiday location

  • 5 of 5

This holiday home is in a rural location but very close to a small town which is convenient for shopping/eating out.

As far as activities to do there are many within a short drive including great canoeing locations, and it's an excellent place to go cycling.It is also very close to many vineyards with two great vineyards at walking distance and many, many at a short drive or cycle.

The near bye town of St Emellion was our favourite it's about 15 miles away is very pretty had excellent shopping, loads of restaurants and wine shops and was extremely picteresque I definately recommend you go there.

As far as the house goes It was perfect! very pretty spacious and well stocked. If I was ever to own a house in France I would make it like this. Every day I found something new in the house, it was like being home away from home. The pool was great and we spent most of our time in or next to it. There was also loads of useful information in the house which found useful when planning days out.

We did not bring kids with us but I imagine if you did they'd have a great time. The Play room is stunning and there were loads of facilities for them.

As far as the service we got it was exemplary. The house was very clean and the owner was very helpful. Before we got to the house the forecast was for rain. He contacted me in advance and suggested things we could do in the local area in poor weather. In the event the weather was good but I still enjoyed visiting the places he suggested.

I am already planning to stay there again next year. 5 Stars!!
