Guestbook comments from the owner

We have received several letters from our 'full house lets' from 2009 if you would like to see these please let me know

John and Elaine and boys aged 6, 9 and 15. Kids had a super time enjoying the great cycle track and there is so much to do in the area what a super place for a holiday-especially enjoyed new swimming pool after a day out we made good use of the large BBQ. Such a relaxing place.

The Paisley family - We were 2 families holidaying together and had plenty of space to do our own thing. We especially liked the two lounges and 2 kitchens give us room where we could read and have some space. There were plenty of activities for the children, the renown Walibi Park where we all had a great day out. Also the great 'Aqua' indoor swimming complex with lovely outdoor picnic area. Thoroughly recommended.

The Holmes family. Good place for a holiday. Enjoyed lovely weather for Easter-time. Enjoyed bbq /pool area-super family terrace for our meals very relaxing.

Les Peupliers

  • 5 of 5

Returned to 'Les Peupliers' for the third time with large group of friends who all fell in love with it. It is the perfect house for several families with its five ensuite bedrooms, large lounges and fabulous garden full of nooks and crannies for stolen quiet moments. Kate and Michel are so welcoming and considerate of guests' needs. There's always a welcome pack in the fridge (which is very handy if one should arrive late in the day) and plenty of information regarding the house itself, internet, hi-fi, local attractions, markets etc.

We particularly enjoyed cycling along the canal and had some great games of petanque alongside the river.

Totally relaxing.

Peaceful Peupliers

  • 5 of 5

Les Peupliers is a big, comfortable house with a gorgeous garden.  We stayed there with friends and family and found that there was much to do and see in the area such as walking, cycling and driving around the many beautiful towns and villages nearby.  It is also a perfect place for doing nothing at all and just enjoying the quiet of the garden and the river  bank. We would highly recommend this delightful place to a family or group of friends.

Beautiful house, tranquil location

  • 5 of 5

A most beautiful house, wonderful gardens and such a tranquil setting. House ideal for 2 families as such a lot of space, 2 lounges ideal for us as extended family of 10. Plenty of places for a little peace and quiet! Lovely terraces both upstairs and down, including the wonderful BBQ area. House and kitchen very well equiped, home from home.

We all enjoyed the lovely pool and walks and bike rides along the canal just next to the house.

Unfortunately, due to a member of our group taken very poorly on our first day we didn't explore the area a great deal but did visit some very picturesque villages nearby, enjoyed the tennis court in the village and fishing in river and canal locally.

Kate and Michelle, the truely lovely owners, gave us a very warm welcome on arrival with tea and biscuits! They were the most helpful people when 1 of our group was still in hospital at the end of our holiday. We would all love to return one day.
