Perfect Getaway in French Countryside

  • 5 of 5

We could not have wished for a more relaxing week away at this spacious holiday home. We particularly enjoyed spending time reading in your beautiful upstairs sitting room and playing table tennis in your games room. Plenty of places to visit and lovely restaurants nearby too. We had some excellent meals out and when we stayed in we had a perfect patio for al fresco dining. We also spent a wonderful day at the lakes. Thank you for a perfect week, we thoroughly recommend.
