Perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We've just had our first family holiday staying in the Matrieux gite with friends. It is just like a home from home. There was everything we needed and more for the children. The hosts were so friendly and gave great advice on what to do in the area and made sure our stay was just perfect. The swimming pool was amazing and we had loads of fun in the games room! We would love to return as there's still lots to do, we just couldn't fit it all in. The holiday really did exceed our expectations and we hope to come back.

Once again we have just had the most lovely holiday at their beautiful location. Truly lovely hosts Nicki and Richard made us feel totally welcome as always. We already looking to book a longer stay next year. The location is wonderful and the accomodation and the people make it what it is. Beautiful swimming pool and grounds make this the perfect place to relax and kick back having the beautiful surrounding towns and hamlets a place never to forget. It is just lie our second home. These people make us proud to see our fellow Brits making a wonderful place for all the rest of us to stay and enjoy. Thanks Richard for the wine, we are just having a tipple to your health. Love Carol, Chris, Mary, Alexis and Andy.

Séjour parfait !

  • 5 of 5

Chaque gîte est réellement indépendant avec son jardin privatif, son hamac, corde à linge etc. La piscine est très bien entretenue (avec accessoires fournis, bouées, tapis, frites, de quoi s'amuser) et il y a véritablement TOUT sur place pour passer un séjour reposant. Si vous avez des enfants en bas-âge, tout est sur place (lits bébé, chaise haute, baignoire, jouets, ventilateurs, bac à sable, balançoire etc.), en cas de mauvais temps, une très grande salle de jeux avec un billard, une table de ping pong, et une salle de sport séparée. Barbecue sur place également. Le site est extrêmement calme, situé dans un lieu-dit avec très peu de circulation. C'est la campagne profonde ! Les alentours sont jolis, à une demi-heure de voiture vous trouverez de beaux villages, des châteaux, des grottes, un lac aménagé en plage. Les hôtes sont très serviables. Je recommande très chaudement !

Beautiful setting, owners very welcoming

  • 4 of 5

The listing description accurately reflects the location, layout and facilities. The swimming pool was fantastic, very child friendly, with a very secure gate and fencing; it was really comforting to know that my 20 month old son could run around the complex with the older children without us worrying that he'd be falling in the pool if we weren't watching him. There were lots of toys and activities to entertain younger children, so don't worry about taking toys to entertain your children, and also lots of activities for older children too, cinema room, games room, bikes and even tractor rides on occasion! The gite was very comfortable, and well equipped. We did have a problem with a leaky shower which we did report, hopefully this will be sorted! The owners were very friendly and sometimes socialised with us which was nice. The owner's children were fabulous, and our children loved playing with them. This gite offers good value for money, and we'd recommend it to our friends. We had a great holiday!

aanrader met kinderen

  • 5 of 5

heel leuk verblijf om met kinderen te vertoeven, elke dag zwembadpret, gebruik van mountainbikes, echt al het nodige is voorhanden en met vragen kan je steeds bij de eigenaars terecht, alleen jammer dat de pizza avond bij ons niet kon doorgaan, maar absoluut een aanrader om te logeren
