About the Owner

The beach! We love the beach, barely 4 kms. We chose this area for its excellent climate, offering warm, lazy spring & autumn days & long hot summers. There is something for every age group in the general area, the beaches being a particular attraction. We bought this huge old place in 1995 & restored it ourselves.Old properties, dating to the 17th century. Staff available if there is anything you need.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were not disappointed with this. It is a very old cottage, so a bit on the dark side, but with several extremely interesting features, and not at all expensive. We were greeted by the owner's son, who was very helpful. We made a mistake in bringing our own bedding and in future would hire it, towels likewise, but apart from that drag of having to make up our own beds when we were very tired it was a great holiday. The village restaurant seems to be shut half the time, but there is a nice general store and a baker, all just one minute's walk away. There is a road not far with a bit of a background hum of traffic, but nothing that bothered us. All in all very good.

Location

From the Owner

We have always been interested in history, and this property is loaded with it. Nazis occupied the Chateau during WWII. The original property was much bigger and was burnt to the ground during the French Revolution. We have kept as much as we possibly can of the old features and have worked hard at retaining the traditional rural character of the place. You will not find stream-lined bathrooms and kitchens here, though there is of course everything you need for a wonderful holiday - sunshine included, all being well !

Booking Notes:
Please email or telephone us to confirm availability. Please note that there are 3 two-bedroom cottages, and 2 three-bedroom cottages so the calendar will only show FULL when both/all are booked. We need to know the dates and number of people and children. We require a small deposit (part of the rent) immediately, with the balance in two/three payments. Upon receipt of deposit we will send you further information on the area and confirm details. Linen, cot etc. can be hired, let us know. Linen, in cottages at 15e pp and in Chateau at 15e pp includes all bedding, towels, bath mats, tea towels & beds will be made. WiFi .

Notes on prices:
All cottage prices are based on 2 people per bedroom; we charge a small supplement for one extra person per cottage. In the Chateau we take 12 people with a supplement for up to 2 extra people - the property will take more but we find it creates too much wear and tear. Utilities are included in peak season. Bed linen and towels available for a small fee, also cot, high chair etc. - just let me know.

Notes:

  • Very popular; we are packed out every year and have a large % of re-bookings, so we think you'll like it! All cottages are within high stone walled grounds, provides privacy and security. All cottages have wood burning stoves if chilly in the spring or autumn . All windows double glazed and the properties insulated. We sometimes accept a pet (prior arrangement) in low or mid season at supplement of 150 euros pw. The pool is solar heated and usually open end April/early May through to October. Please note that because there are three 2-bedroom cottages, and two 3-bedroom cottages, and only one calendar, it is not possible for me to update availability unless everybody has booked exactly the same weeks. The 4 bedroom cottage & Chateau charts correct because there is just one chart for each.Note that prices in cottages are for 2 people per bedroom and we charge supplement of 150 pw for 1 extra (regardless of age), likewise a cat or a dog which is by prior arrangement only in low season. Big safe grounds & kiddy play areas. Outside: The integral secure car park is well away from the childrens play area which comprises play-castle, sand pit, swings slides and loads of space to play and run around. The 16 x 8m swimming pool is solar heated. Plenty of sun beds and sun shades. Table tennis for non-serious games, book room.
